Should I exercise? Is a bike ride overdoing it? These are some of the questions commonly asked by patients with heart problems, tumors or orthopedic problems. In the future, the “Quantified Health System” from the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems FOKUS might be able to help individuals with questions like these: The system uses a fitness wristband that detects vital signs such as pulse, processes this data statistically and sends it to the patient’s doctor, who then sets individual health goals based on this information. The “Quantified Health System” will be on display at the joint Fraunhofer booth at the MEDICA trade show in Dusseldorf from November 14 to 17.
