So-STRAP

So-STRAP: SOcial connectedness and Self TRAcking for Prevention and diagnosis of heart disease

How to reduce the burden of heart disease for patients, healthcare workers and society through the early detection of heart disease or its deterioration? Solution: a data collection and diagnosis platform that enhances adherence to and supports behavioral change for cardiac patients through social connectedness. The NWO-STRAP project will feature affective communication, social journaling and awareness through wearables, thereby paving the way for lowering the costs of treatment and improving the quality of cardiac care for target user groups where improvements are readily obtainable and highly relevant, such as elderly heart patients and all-comers at cardiac outpatient clinics.
