RBI supporting “HeartStep” experiment inside TETRAMAX project

TETRAMAX is a Horizon 2020 innovation action and provides an implementation of the European Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) initiative in the domain of customized and low-energy computing for cyber physical systems and the internet of things. The total budget of the TETRAMAX project is 7M€ and is coordinated by RWTH Aachen University, with 23 partners, covering almost all EU countries.

“HeartStep” is funded by TETRAMAX first call for bilateral TTX. It is a TTX between Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI), a Croatian research institute and SAVING d.o.o SME company in Slovenia. Together they are working on the improvement of a smart body gadget monitoring the heart, which saves time in the diagnosis of heart patients and is already used in many clinics in Slovenia and the rest of the EU.

In the scope of the HeartStep TTX project, an upgraded system prototype will be implemented, with an actual SAVVY® ECG sensor, by connecting the accelerometer sensor to the SAVVY processor through an available serial interface, by integrating the accelerometer firmware into the SAVVY software and by incorporation the posture and activity data into the existing ECG radio packets.

Follow up after the finishing HeartStep planning the HeartMon system intends to improve Savvy wearable ECG sensor by a Cloud service using HPC for detecting arrhythmia. The project will improve the product performance and will decrease the decision-making process by incorporating Big Data analytics. It will create flexibility and efficiency, reduce the production processing time, enable processing of long-term ECG measurements (up to 30 days), speedup the report creation by 100% and enable real-time monitoring of 1000 concurrent users.
