Scientific focus


The research focus on how to develop individualized innovative welfare -, as well as digital health & rehabilitation technologies and new health services that can lead to scalable and sustainable solutions.

The research is interdisciplinary (medical, technological, nursing, organizational, economically) and often in co-creation with patients, relatives, healthcare professionals and researchers.

Welfare technologies are defined as technologies for assisted living. Digital health & rehabilitation technologies are defined as technologies that uses informations- and communication technologies to transmit data from patients home to a healthcare professional.

In the JD TeleTech we will focus on next generation of technologies for eg. self-management of a chronic diseases based on wearables, Internet of Things (IoT), sensors technologies, VR, gamification etc. These technologies provide data in large numbers and therefore part of the research will also focus on datamining and designing algorithms/AI for the patients and healthcare professionals. Data security is part of the research as well.
