Fraunhofer at the DMEA
Connecting Digital Health
Connecting Digital Health
The expert team from Fraunhofer look forward to meeting you at DMEA 2022 – this year live and in person again. We cordially invite you to visit us at the Fraunhofer combined booth (E106) in Hall 2.2.
As the main platform for digital healthcare, the DMEA offers visitors a comprehensive market overview and a wide range of opportunities for in-depth exchange of views and targeted networking.
Fascinating insights from the latest cutting-edge research await you!
At the DMEA trade fair, the Fraunhofer MED²ICIN lighthouse project will present its prototype of a clinical decision support system based on a digital patient twin. The system collates all of a patient's health information and matches it with disease-specific data. Clinical guidelines and health economic aspects are also included in the holistic digital patient model. The goals are to improve treatment and optimize the use of healthcare spending. The University Hospital Frankfurt is currently testing the prototype on chronic inflammatory bowel diseases.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD is making a contribution to personalized medicine with its digital solutions. The software applications support professionals and patients in prevention, diagnostics and therapy. At the DMEA trade fair, Fraunhofer IGD will present the CareCam software (a health coach for employees who work with computer screens), the EU project PlatformUptake, which evaluates open platform solutions for care facilities, and software solutions for analyzing medical image data. The Guardio® app, which transforms heart movements into an ECG when the smartphone is placed on the patient’s chest, will also be showcased.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed a management system for monocenter and multicenter clinical studies, called DPM.research. The system enables a smooth, automated exchange among all those involved in the study while at the same time effectively evaluating the study objectives and measures. With an app and various wearables, such as CardioTEXTIL for medical-grade arrhythmia monitoring, the data is measured directly on the patient in real time, in clinical and home environments, while adhering to privacy requirements.
The Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Internet Technologies CCIT will present a secure, wirelessly connected medical sensor application in the MEDISEC project: CardioTEXTIL, a textile carrier system with integrated sensor technology, enables early detection of cardiovascular diseases using a 3-channel ECG. Tamper-proof sensor electronics, IoT security protocols and state-of-the-art encryption methods ensure that information is processed in a privacy-compliant manner.
Treatment pathways can be holistically digitalized by linking clinical information systems with novel measurement technology and robotic handling systems. Emphasis is placed on the operating room, patient admission and their medical history. The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA will present the topic using the example of the ProM²etheus process management system. The system is being developed for comprehensive control when treating oligometastatic cancer patients at the M²OLIE research campus.
When it comes to our health, it is essential that we can rely on technology. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology IPK are creating information technology solutions for medical technology so that devices and systems can communicate with each other end-to-end and be used seamlessly. This benefits medical staff, device manufacturers and ultimately patients. At the DMEA trade fair, experts will show how they develop and integrate connected architectures.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Medicine MEVIS aims to make the growing complexity of medicine manageable. At the DMEA trade fair, Fraunhofer MEVIS researchers will present solutions for multicenter research and development projects based on medical image data. SATORI integrates data curation, training and application of AI models with intuitive, customized workflows and visualization. Together with industry, the experts are developing technologies for tomorrow's precision diagnostics and personalized therapy planning.
