The next step in connected technology for health and care

Now the project web for our collaborative project iVO is up and running. Our IoT platform is used to collect sensor data from pilot users in Skellefteå and Kiruna.

Skellefteå, Kiruna and Uppsala municipalities run the project ”Internet of Things (IoT) in health and care” together with 11 other project partners consisting of companies in the industry and universities. A site is now available where the project is continuously updated.

The project is funded by Vinnova and is part of IoT Sweden, which is Vinnova’s, the Swedish Energy Agency’s and Forma’s joint investment in strategic innovation areas. The project is made to try to develop the quality and working methods in health and care, so that they can be more easily adapted to the fact that the proportion of older people in Sweden is increasing faster than the proportion working.
The goal of the iVO project is primarily to broaden the knowledge and experience in how information from different units and systems can be interconnected and used.

In practical terms, this is done by equipping 30 apartments in the municipalities with IoT units from different suppliers and then connecting them in a common system. Based on this, artificial intelligence is used to detect deviations in behavioral patterns. Deviations are sent to residents and their relatives based on their needs and wishes.

You can read more about this on the project website (in Swedish), where you can also take part in the work of some of the 14 partners who are active in the project.
