Healthcare Needs Identification for Chronic Conditions

Working with clinicians, nurses, healthcare professionals and sports medicine experts, STITCH researchers will investigate the impact of advanced wearable and flexible technologies for improving the mobility, quality and personalization of care.

The impact on the experience of patient populations will be examined to identify pathways of collaboration and commercialization with health authorities. Technologies that continuously monitor individuals can help transform the current reactive healthcare methodology into a more proactive approach through early diagnosis and intervention.
