Heart disease is the most common cause of death in Sweden, both for women and men. About half of the western world’s population is ill and dying in any of these diseases. In Sweden, 12 percent of the population has a kind of heart disease.Research in information and communication technology aimed at people with chronic heart failure is able to develop technical solutions through which the target group and its relatives can learn more about the diagnosis, state of illness, nutrition and sleep status. The project also supports good living habits, such as regular meals and enough sleep.
The project will develop a test bed in which technical solutions can be tested and validated. The project is one of six sub-projects in the Test arena Blekinge and is a collaboration with researchers at Blekinge Institute of Technology and the business community of Blekinge.
