Metabolic GIS



This project aims at developing an innovative participatory medicine infrastructure by integrating biomedical sensors, geospatial and positional technologies and Web 2.0. This infrastructure enables patients to communicate, to their health professionals, information about their illnesses, and seek advice. The infrastructure empowers public health planning authorities and primary caregivers to utilise a real-time surveillance system to track current and local medical conditions, and provides sickness information to raise the public awareness.
