Current application scenarios include pronunciation analysis and speech training for rehabilitation and therapy support in speech therapy. The recording and classification of body-related sounds, such as breathing, or the analysis of movement data, for example in the context of neurological diseases, also fall within the group's research and development activities.
Connecting health systematically and practically
The Connected Health group at Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg systematically addresses technological solutions that enable mobile or remote health services. An important goal here is to provide health-conscious users and patients more flexible options for their self-management and for contacting medical professionals. Where possible, this involves readily available consumer technologies and wearables such as smartwatches, hearables, smartphones, as well as existing infrastructures such as cellular networks. This enables healthcare to be provided outside the hospital or a medical office. This approach includes new developments in telemedicine, home care, and lifestyle products.
