Monitoring of Gestational Diabetes and physiological pattern prediction in Pregnant Women
The first part of this project aims to test a telehealth solution designed to provide monitoring and support for women with GDM. Conventional monitoring of the condition is demanding and costly, as it involves intensive self-monitoring of blood glucose and frequent clinic visits. Evaluation of the system will be performed through a cohort study and randomized controlled trial, with aim of reducing time and saving costs for the patients and the health service, while maintaining a good level of care.
The second part of the project deals with prediction of physiological patterns in pregnancy. By recording vital signs (pulse, blood pressure, ppg, respiration, temperature) in a large population of pregnant women, healthy and pathological patterns and trends will be established.
