SummaryObjective: Chronic diseases are those that occur across the whole spectrum of illness, mental health problems and injuries. Management includes medication and/or lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. At the same time, it should be noted that chronic diseases may get worse, lead to death, be cured, remain dormant or require continual monitoring. CHRONIOUS primary goal is to define a European framework for a generic health status monitoring platform schema- addressing people with chronic health conditions. This will be achieved by developing an intelligent, ubiquitous and adaptive chronic disease platform to be used by both patients and healthcare professionals. CHRONIOUS addresses a smart wearable platform, based on multi-parametric sensor data processing, for monitoring people suffering from chronic diseases in long-stay setting. It is constantly monitoring their activity using audio observation methods and activity sensors while at the same time tracking their medical condition via vital signs sensors. Any trait of abnormal health status and possible alerting incidents are detected by CHRONIOUS Intelligence. The system generates alerts in case of invalid medical data or if current activity and behaviour lay outside the well- established activity patterns and locomotion behaviour. Furthermore, CHRONIOUS objective is to face Europe┬┐s challenge for delivering quality healthcare to all its citizens by offering a ubiquitous and more personalised care solution that addresses the user needs, personal data security, confidentiality and privacy of information and all that at an affordable cost. Our proposed solution will be applied to the chronic diseases of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Renal Insufficiency.
