Bringing back the patient at the heart of the healthcare system and ensuring optimal follow-up during hospitalisation

WearIT4Health stems from a former project from Interreg IVA Top Technology Cluster (TTC) having the objective to create new collaborations between research institutions and SMEs, late 2014.

"To bring back the patient at the heart of the health care system, and guarantee an optimal follow-up of the patient during his hospitalization, this is the challenge of wearIT4health.

The objective of the WearIT4Health project is the creation of a portable multi-sensor monitoring device that is comfortable for hospitalised patients and compatible with the IT infrastructure of hospitals in the Euregio Meuse-Rhin.

The project, coordinated by the University of Liège, ULiège), is based on a solid consortium bringing together actors from different regions of the Euregio Meuse-Rhin; their knowledge and know-how are high level and complementary:

  • ULiège – Interface Entreprises (Coordination)
  • ULiège - Microsys (Scientific lead partner)
  • Centexbel
  • Centre hospitalier universitaire de Liège
  • Maastricht Universitair Medisch Centrum
  • Universiteit Maastricht
  • KU Leuven
  • Universiteit Hasselt

The monitoring device that will be developed will record vital medical data continuously and analyse it to help the health care team make the most appropriate decision for the patient. The final TRL of the monitoring device will be TRL 5 level or beginning of TRL 6 level.

Come and discover an ambitious project, supported by the Interreg VA Euregio Meuse-Rhine Cooperation Programme, the Walloon Region, The Provincie Limburg of Belgium, the Provincie Limburg of the Netherlands, and all of the project partners."

The wearIT4health-project, running in the Interreg VA Euregio Maas-Rijn-program, is financed (4,6 million euro) by the European Union, the Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling (EFRO), the province of Wallon, the province of Limburg (Belgium), the province of Limburg (the Netherlands) and the project partners.
