We dress your Health: from Cure to Care through Comfortable Technology
For each of us Health is a primary need, essential and indispensable.
The development of technologies and their impact in the medical field in recent years has introduced the concept of quality of care:
to have advanced diagnostics and therapies is no longer enough, but it is now important also well-being, pleasure and comfort.
These are elements that contribute to a good quality of life for everyone at home, at work, and in the social context he/she lives in.
In a simple word, we move from the concept of "cure" to the concept of "care", word that describes the philosophy of quality of care or of "taking care of the whole person.
Health Care is proposing a process that provides a clinical service not exclusively addressed to security and provision of treatment to the subject (which is and remains the main point), but which supports the concept of quality of life for the same patient, the family and health professionals who interact with him/her every day.
In more modern vision of healthcare there is also a participative trend in prevention and cure: an active collaboration of the patient and his/her family in the process of basic health (prevention, diagnosis and treatment) through the use of new technologies such as the monitoring of physiological parameters.
For this reason Comfortable Technology proposes the design and production of a wearable biomedical system, in the form of an item of clothing, thus easy to dress and use because sensors are inside and in the right position.
Wearable Biomedical Systems (WBS) can be definied as integrated systems on body-worn platforms capable of offering continuous monitoring solutions through the measurement of non-invasive biomedical, biochemical and physical parameters. Consequently, WBS represent an ideal platform for non-intrusive, continuous multi-parameter remote health monitoring for primary and secondary prevention, early diagnosis and management of some diseases (e.g. cardiovascular and/or respiratory diseases).
