CHUV/SUPAA/LAUSANNE

The Vaud University Hospital Center (CHUV) is one of the five Swiss university hospitals. Thanks to its collaboration with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne, the CHUV plays a leading European role in the fields of medical care, medical research and training. Our collboration with Prof. Armin von Gunten, whose main research domain centers on the investigation of “Predictors of behavioural and psychological symptoms and signs in the elderly with cognitive disorders and further cognitive decline” and includes various collaborative methodologies.

HOPITAL DE LA TOUR/GENEVE

The Hopital de la Tour in Geneva is engaged in sports medecine. Our parnetrs ar focusing on monitoring athletes training load which is essential for determining whether they are adapting to their training program, understanding individual responses to training, assessing fatigue and the associated need for recovery, and minimizing the risk of overtraining, injury, and illness. By doing so, training monitoring could also aim to enhance athletic performance. We provide an innovative monitoring system using an AI approach of several training and recovery parameters to produce meaningful and actionable information to coaches and athletes.

 

KAIST/DAEJEON

Korea Advanced Institute of Science end Technology is a public research university located in Daejeon, Republic of Korea. Our partners from KAIST focus on the development of human stress monitoring band and its application. The novelty of the present band is compact size and high flexibility; thereby, easily built into the commercial wearable and mobile devices. The present band has applications for not only patients but also non-patients by monitoring ANS. For patients, the present band can alert or notice the potential risks related with ANS to doctors for medical patients monitoring, using communication modules of the wearable devices. Also, the present band alerts the emergency situations like heart attack to rescue team. For non-patients, the present band can provide wellness information required to individual users.


Stressors and stress measures

Real, symbolic, or imagined stimuli perceived as threatening by a person represent a stressor.
In the human spe-cies, proximity of other conspecifics can be either soothing or a major stressor depending on the context and the individuals involved.
Many factors constitute a major stressor for the elderly, especially those with cognitive impairment, when they are admitted to or stay in a hospital or nursing home.
Thus, adequate measures against stressors are paramount as a first step to reduce the negative influences of psychological stress to health.
Continuous psychological stress monitoring in daily life is important. There are two conventional methods to measure psychological stress: self-report and body fluid analysis.
The self-report method is hard put to monitor human stress consistently due to the lack of standards for stress status. The body fluid analysis is invasive and cannot measure stress continuously.
