MyAirCoach was present in the 5th International Conference on e-Health and Bioengineering. More specifically, a new algorithmic approach has been presented for the acoustic detection of inhaler actuations through the use of Convolution Neural Networks.
A recent article on the Medtech Engine has focused on MyAirCoach and specifically on the presentation of the project in the ISAM congress in Munich. After a short overview of the framework of the project, its main objectives are presented outlining in this way the innovation potential of MyAirCoach.
I am an asthma patient, or more accurately, an asthma sufferer really fed up of going to the doctors or the hospital because of my asthma. I’d much rather be on holiday, seeing friends and family; even just not worrying about whether I’ve remembered my inhaler or not would be brilliant!
That’s why I decided to join MyAirCoach project as a volunteer patient advisor.
The annual congress of the European Respiratory Society presented a great opportunity for the dissemination of MyAirCoach project and the strengthening of its relations with the research community. The project’s consortium was well represented in the activities of the congress through the participation of EFA, AsthmaUK, Imperial College, Leiden University and Aerocrine.
On the 8-9th of July, EFA will represent myAirCoach consortium at the Responsible Research Innovation-ICT 2015 workshop. The workshop is a European Commission DG Connect initiative together with the RRI-ICT Forum Project.
The event will serve to identify challenges, share knowledge and experiences and build experiences in the domains of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), areas that are present in the H2020 programme.
The second meeting of the MyAirCoach project was hosted by the Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands. The meeting gave to the consortium the opportunity to discuss their progress and the future directions of the project and plan the next steps and activities. Special focus was given to the design and deployment of the foreseen test campaigns and the definition of the sensing components of the system.
The first results of the myAirCoach project were presented in the recent congress of the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine. Dr. Konstantinos Votis described the current state-of-the-art technologies in the field of mobile health technologies and positioned the goals of myAirCoach in this framework and towards the optimized management of asthma.
In order to increase asthma awareness and mark the celebration of World Asthma Day, CNS published an interesting article on asthma management featuring the myAirCoach project. For more information please visit the website of Citizen News Service
EFA as the responsible partner for the project’s dissemination and visibility has successfully published the first article in the news of European Commision under the title “myAirCoach: Asthma management and control from a mobile phone”. EFA is also working for the definition of project’s visual identity, the design of the new logo and templates that will ensure visibility and consistency in all communications of the project.
