Personalised Body Sensor Networks with Built-In Intelligence for Real-Time Risk Assessment and Coaching of Ageing workers, in all types of working and living environments

Project description

Interventions to keep older construction workers healthy

Ageing workers in the construction and manufacturing sectors face increased musculoskeletal health problems. The early assessment of these problems assures prevention and self-management in any working environment. The EU-funded BIONIC project will develop an integrated, instructive, autonomous and privacy-protecting platform for real-time risk assessment and permanent coaching that will allow the design of workplace interventions for specific categories of elderly workers. The concept will advance medical wearable technology integrating sensor modules in multi-direction and configurable body sensor networks. BIONIC relies on a multidisciplinary group of researchers from the domains of wearable electronics, artificial intelligence and wearables for health applications and experts in ergonomics and anthropometry, occupational safety and health, data analytics and system security, and personal data protection.
