Sensors for HEalth Recording and Physical Activity Monitoring


Brief description of study

The SHERPAM project is part of a scientific and technological context which aim is to record, transmit, analyse the physiological parameters of a patient, as well as to record the feedback to the patient and health professional to suggest the best individualised attitude. The questions of SHERPAM are generic. However, two specific applications will be addressed, in which the partners have already acquired some expertise: the recognition and quantification of physical activity with energy expenditure estimation, and the assessment of walking ability in patients with obliterative vascular disease in the lower limbs. Another application concerns the monitoring of the practice of physical activity and some biological signs in subjects with cardiovascular risk and in cardiac patients (arrhythmogenic diseases). Despite various clinical contexts and health goals, a common approach will be developed.

Detailed Study Description

To assess the SHERPAM Device (DS) by the continuous acquisition and transmission of data (accelerations, rotations, alterations in thoracic volume, heart rate, electrocardiogram) in a real life physical activity practice (subjects in their living environment and during their usual physical practices) using the DS's real-time communication tools, automatic data processing, and the DS's ability to produce information.
