New remote non-invasive monitoring solutions for ensuring the health of mothers and babies before and after birth
The NewLife project will develop new remote non-invasive monitoring solutions for ensuring the health of mothers and babies before and after birth. The target is to develop emerging non-invasive methods for gathering vital data and analysing it with advanced AI/ML methods, to be able to secure life in its most vulnerable phase. For clinical acceptance, the developed solutions need to be well integrated to the clinical workflows, with proper data integration, security, safety, and medical qualification.
The technologies and solutions developed are demonstrated in five use cases for both hospitals and personalized monitoring in home environments: 1) Pregnancy & parent companion, 2) Smart garment for monitoring of pregnancies & complications, 3) Fetal monitoring patch for high-risk pregnancies, 4) Newborn monitoring with smart clothes, and 5) Newborn monitoring well-being in bed.
The role of Noldus
Noldus will develop a platform for integrating, synchronizing and analyzing data streams from sensors measuring various aspect's of the babies' health and welfare. It will cooperate closely with a number of other technical partners to make an optimal integrated solution for researchers working in this area.
The project is led by Philips Research and has a large consortium of 28 partners, including Noldus. They are mostly innovative companies, and several research institutes are also partners.
NewLife is part of the Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking (KDT-JU) program of the EU's Horizon Europe research program. The funding is provided by the project's partners, the EU and the national governments of the partners.
