Actual Research Projects

The Centre for Cardiovascular Telemedince is actual partner of two public funded telemedicine research projects. Another research and development project was succcessfully completed in March 2011.

NexGen - Next Generation of Body Monitoring (FKZ: 16ES0516)

The Project Next Generation of Body Monitoring (NexGen), targets to develop key micro-electronic technologies and components for future mobile/wearable health care systems. The feasibility will be demonstrated along 2 interconnected ubiquitous body monitoring systems of high social and economic importance, an implanted glucose monitor and a non-invasive on-body multi-parameter monitor. It will be pinpointed that these body monitoring systems facilitate new business cases in the mobile health care system.

This european Research and Development Project will be realised in the Charité in cooperation with Opens external link in current windowDepartment of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (Director: Prof. Dr. med. J. Spranger)

Coordinator: Infineon Technologies AG, Munich/Germany

Funding Volume Charité: ca. 710,000 EUR

Health region of the future Northern Brandenburg - Fontane (FKZ: 13KQ0904B)

The project is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research over a period of ten years (2009-2018).

The aim of the project is the improvement of the health care for cardiovascular diseases in structurally underdeveloped rural areas by using broad application of modern IT-systems (Telemedicine or Remote Patient Monitoring) and biomarker guided diagnostics and therapy management across different health care sectors.
Product innovations like homecare platform and self-adaptive prioritising middleware supports this new health care model.

Since 2009 the industrial and scientific partners Deutsche Telekom GmbH, getemed AG, Brahms GmbH – Part of Thermo Fisher Scientific and Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering are developing in cooperation with the CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin these product innovations.

These product innovations will be evaluated in a clinical trial with heart failure patients since 2013: TIM-HF II

Funding Volume Charité: ca. 9 Mio. EUR

MAS - Nanoelectronics for Mobile Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Systems (FKZ: 16SV4063)

MAS is funded by the Joint Ventures ENIAC JU and of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Research and development project MAS focus on the development of an integrated approach for the areas of health monitoring and therapy support at home, and mobile health, wellness and fitness. The Charité supports the consortium in the MAS system- and application-planning and later implementation, and performs the relevant clinical tests on the systems implemented in the form of clinical applications, with focus on cardiac patients.

Project volume:ca. 28 Mio. Euro
Project Volume, part of Charité: ca. 0,5 Mio. Euro
