Integration of glucose meter in LinkWatch Cloud Service

CNets has sponsored a bachelor thesis targeting the integration of a glucose meters into the LinkWatch eHealth platform. The thesis was handed in and evaluated at KTHs School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health (CBH).

As different medical products send data to their own platforms, it becomes challenging for both patient and care provider to take and keep track of all available vital parameters. This lack of a universal platform connecting to devices of different manufacturers, combining all available data has been the initial motivation to develop LinkWatch. It provides a platform where all the patient’s medical measurements can be collected and visualized. The mobile application, developed both for iOS and Android have been programmed in Kotlin and Swift to provide a secure and efficient data transfer between the blood glucose meter and LinkWatch’s web server. The mobile application can connect to the blood glucose meter with Bluetooth and transfer its measurements to the LinkWatch’s web server. When the records are stored in the LinkWatch system, the patient can see their glucose levels along with other vital parameters.

The bachelor thesis Integrering av glukosmätare med molntjänst för hemmonitorering was carried out by:

AsthmaWatch pollution data and pollen forecast for Stockholm

Air pollution induced respiratory diseases are rapidly increasing in large cities. Treatment of diseases caused by air pollution is estimated to cost approximately 2% of GDP in developed countries and 5% in developing countries. AsthmaWatch, developed in the GOEASY project incorporates a Galileo based secure mobile air quality monitoring platform into a mobile smartphone app that enables users to identify places and pollutants that they can avoid. Every day outdoor air quality changes on a street-by-street basis. By crowdsourcing air quality information from mobile sensors, the app helps citizens proactively avoid unhealthy environments.

Pollution varies in location and distribution strongly related to the weather and people suffering from Asthma or from pollen allergies can use detailed forecast data to avoid highly polluted areas to avoid negative impacts on their health. AsthmaWatch visualizes measured pollution for the Stockholm area providing detailed forecasts and rout recommendations based on pollution data:
