Technologies

Vital, behavioral, and environmental sensors

 

Tailored sensor systems for recording

  • biosignals, e.g. ECG, blood oxygen, blood pressure, pulse, breathing, body temperature
  • behavior, e.g. movement, activity, emotions
  • environmental parameters, e.g. room temperature, device levels or operating status, etc.

can be discreetly integrated into the home environment, provided as a mobile solution, and used in professional care, rehabilitation, or point-of-care diagnostics.

 

Telematics and Networking Infrastructures

 

Standardized and safe solutions for communication and interoperability as well as rapid data exchange, encrypted transfer, and secure storage.


AI-Based Data Analysis for Condition and Event Detection

 

  • Reliable detection of emergency situations and activities
  • Support for diagnoses and treatment plans
  • Using multimodal, longitudinal, text- or image-based data, directly at the sensor, embedded, in the cloud, or “Software-as-a-Service”
     

User-Friendly Device Operation and Interfaces

 

Intuitive human-machine interfaces for smooth and accessible interaction between users, environments, and devices using intelligent speech, facial, or gesture recognition.

Mechatronic Systems

 

Scalable actuators, secure robotics, and mobile autonomous service platforms help to support and reduce the burden on physicians, care staff, patients, relatives, and those seeking convenience in a range of situations.

 

Services

Hardware and Software Development and Integration

 

Fraunhofer AAL members have many core skills, including the high-quality, secure, and cost-efficient development of software and hardware and the integration of existing components into challenging situations such as the clinical environment.  

Data Processing, Data Curation, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

 
Sensors, devices, and processes provide data and information throughout the clinical care chain.
The Fraunhofer AAL Alliance
 
  • supports the recording, processing, and AI-based evaluation of these collections of data, and 
  • provides solutions for sensor- or cloud-based analysis and “Software-as-a-Service”
 

Studies on User Acceptance, Accessibility, Usability, and the User Experience

 
Interactive devices must be easy to use and accepted by end users if they are to be successful. It is vital that they are accessible and work intuitively.
 
The Fraunhofer AAL Alliance provides studies that evaluate human-machine interfaces

Empirical and Systematic Evaluation of Infrastructures and Technologies

 
System benefits and reliability must be sufficiently evaluated and tested before and during use in medical and care environments.
 
The Fraunhofer AAL Alliance has experts who specialize in analyzing complex situations effectively and efficiently. They can provide reliable and objective support for these evaluations.


Development of Business Models, Processes, and Concepts

 
To transfer new products to the healthcare market, appropriate business models, new work processes, and integration concepts must be developed throughout the value creation chain that take into account the entire healthcare sector.

The Fraunhofer AAL Alliance uses its many years of expertise and experience to provide support here.
