Healthcare project with mSafety wearable in Sweden
Supporting patients and care staff with IoT devices
The project is called 3MaKS, or “Targets, Motivation, and Measurements for Chronic Illness” (Swedish: Målsättning, Motivering och Mätning vid Kronisk Sjukdom). Its main objective is to increase patient’s independence and improve healthcare capabilities through IoT technology.
The project will initially focus on patients who have had a kidney transplant – an operation that leaves the patient with numerous medical responsibilities. The number of prescriptions, doses of medication, diet and lifestyle requirements are often too much for patients to keep track of by themselves.
mSafety from Sony is the digital solution that’s currently being used by healthcare workers and patient representatives in this trial. The mSafety wearable device displays personalised data to the patient including notifications about for example, medication, diet tips or appointment reminders. It also informs medical staff about the status of the patient’s health in real-time. This enhances the patients’ independence as well as their quality of life - in both the long and short-term.
The project runs until January 2023 and involves numerous partners: Innovation Skåne, Region Skåne, Lund University, RISE, Sony Network Communications Europe, miThings and Region Blekinge. It is being financed by Vinnova, Formas and Energimyndigheten via the strategic innovation programme, IoT Sweden.
