The main vital signs measured by the VidaAppTM Spirometer are:
1. Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) is the maximum capacity to capture and expel air, under forced conditions.
2. Maximum expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1) is the amount of air expelled during the first second of maximal expiration, performed after a maximum inspiration.
Who is it for?
The product is indicated for people with chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD, asthma, apnea, smoking and pneumonia.
How does it work?
VidaAppTM Spirometer device senses the vital signs and performs a first analysis (pre-alarm) of variables out of range, according to the limits established by the Medical Control Center. In case of an event, it is connected through low-energy Bluetooth with the mobile of the user, which communicates through the mobile network with the Medical Center, including the alarm data and the geolocation of the user, to determine an appropriate course of action.
VIDA APP SPIROMETER SYSTEM
For interior scenarios, such as a residence or a medical center, the VidaAppTM Spirometer can dispense with the user's mobile phone to send the events and use the Solar Node VidaAppTM which acts as a collection node for several spirometers and displays a GSM / GPRS and low-energy Bluetooth gateway to connect to the Medical Control Center.
VIDA APP SPIROMETER SYSTEM IN INTERIOR SCENARIO
In a mobility scenario, the VidaAppTM Spirometer can be a satellite device of the VidaApp Vest. The spirometer connects via Bluetooth with the VidaAPP vest, which acts as a collection node to send the information to the Medical Control Center through a 3G modem integrated in the second PCB.
VIDA APP SPIROMETER SYSTEM IN MOBILITY SCENARIO
When using the VidaAppTM
Spirometer in conjunction with the VidaAppTM
Vest, the following variables of pulmonary activity are multiplied to be transmitted to pneumologists:
- Spirometry: Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) and Maximum expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1).
- Impedance pneumonography: senses the respiratory rate in number of ventilations per minute.
- Pedometer to measure steps and km traveled.
- GPS for geolocation of the user in case of exacerbations.
- Pulse oximetry by reflection, with capacity to determine the oxygen content in blood and the heart pulse.
- Panic button to alert emergency services in case of exacerbations.
- Body temperature.
- Therapeutic adherence: control of the medication through the app.
- Remote auscultation. (Premium vest function requires second PCB).
- Pre-recorded audio chips for medication reminder. (Premium vest function requires second PCB).
On the other hand, the VidaAppTM
Blood Pressure Monitor can be paired to VidaAppTM
Vest as a third device providing blood pressure measurement (systolic and diastolic in mmHg) for the monitoring of people with respiratory diseases.VidaApp Neumo Mobile Application
(doctor and patient profile):
- Panel of Vital Constants.
- Map with the position of the user.
- Summary sheet of user data.
Triggering of medical alarms:
- Breathing frequency.
- Heart rate.
- High oxygen saturation: hyperventilation, anxiety.
- Low oxygen saturation: chronic lung diseases, decompensation or asthma crisis, heart disease.
- Blood Pressure: systolic and diastolic.

These sensors emit data in continuous streaming and the information is stored and analyzed in real time. The development of a platform with a frontend adapted to the needs of the users, with a profile for the doctor that supervises and a profile for the patient is foreseen. A centralized database will be made up of patient information that will enable Big Data Analysis and reporting of mass behavior. An ANDROID and iOS operating system app is expected to be developed so patients can view relevant information, provide information about their illness, and schedule medication alarms to improve therapeutic adherence.
Through the whole system, it is proposed the design of a remote monitoring service for patients with respiratory diseases that allows:
● Transform the access of the health of patients with COPD through information and communication technologies to improve their quality of life.
● Promote active participation and self-management of the patient in the care of their health.
● Establish predictive algorithms based on biometric data and offer preventive medicine services. Grouping, analysis and dissemination of data to physicians, to achieve a true personalized treatment when necessary. Construction of predictive models with techniques such as linear regression, generalized linear models, logistic regression and classification trees.
● Design personalized health plans according to the needs of each patient focused on a precision medicine.
● Use Big Data to improve system efficiency and costs and to aid clinical decision making in real time.
● Proactively manage health care using accumulated information to predict future events.
● Improve therapeutic adherence.
● Improve adherence to home-based respiratory rehabilitation plans based on home aerobic training supervised by physiotherapists and pneumologists.
