Analysis, modelling and sensing of both physiological and environmental factors for the customized and predictive self-management of Asthma


  • Continuous, context-aware, multi-parametric monitoring of asthma related parameters, activity, lifestyle, and environment
  • To Design and integrate miniaturised sensors into a novel small and lightweight inhaler prototype device
  • To develop a “personalised monitoring and guidance mHealth platform”
  • To develop patient specific physiological and environment aware computational model for asthma disease
  • Test campaigns with beneficiaries
  • Exploration of predictive value of new physiological markers that may enhance predictability of asthma
  • To validate myAirCoach project results in real-life scenarios

IHP's Contribution

IHP will lead in the development of the body area network and a new sensor-based inhaler device, the embedded algorithms and communication infrastructure. The major tasks of IHP in the project are:

  • Development of new sensor nodes for mobile sensing of physiological and vital parameters
  • Development and integration of strong security and privacy protection technologies
  • Implementation of efficient data management and lowpower communication means for in BAN data processing


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Program Horizon 2020 under grant agreement Nº 643607.
