Master thesis suggestions - Applied Machine Learning and AI in Blood Pressure Measurement

Do you want to be part of the creation of future health care?

By allowing chronically ill patients to continuously measure their blood pressure in their home, one can get a more accurate measurement basis than primary care can offer today. With these data, doctors can better make decisions about what care interventions need to be done, such as proper medication. Continuous measurement of blood pressure and pulse will over time build a large amount of data. By combining these data with other metrics such as lifestyle factors and activity information from mobile devices (such as Apple's HealthKit or Google Fit), there will be a basis for developing different AI solutions.

The purpose of the exams is to evaluate which factors may be relevant in the context, and to develop algorithms that lead to an AI-based decision support for continued care efforts. The exams should be conducted as a collaboration of two students. Knowledge of Java Spring and MariaDB will facilitate the work.

Company information

Accumbo bygger Sveriges första digitala vårdtjänst som är specialanpassad för patienter med högt blodtryck. Högt blodtryck eller hypertoni som det också kallas, är den enskilt största orsaken till hjärt-kärlsjukdom såsom stroke och hjärtinfarkt. I Sverige har vi ca 2 miljoner vuxna med högt blodtryck.

I dagsläget finns både digitala vårdcentraler och hälsoappar för att logga blodtryck, men ingen sjukvårdstjänst som kombinerar båda, och fokuserar på individualiserad vård av kronisk sjukdom.

Vårt mål är att skapa en bättre hälsa för patienten och minska belastningen på den traditionella sjukvården vad det gäller kroniska sjukdomar.
