Empowering the Future of Neuroscience

Empowering the Future of Neurosceince

Jonas Group

The Institute for Digital Medicine works at the intersection between computer science, health sciences, and medicine. We focus on the research of mobile devices in medical and clinical services using novel body sensors, smartphones, and wearable and implantable technology. The ubiquitous availability of mobile devices will change medicine and prevention over the next decades. We will help to leverage the move from centralised clinical facilities into the hands of experts as well as lay people, simplifying the access to healthcare, health-related information and health support. The new techniques and additional data will especially enrich clinical research and allow a view into patients’ everyday activities and wellbeing. The further digitalisation of healthcare will especially benefit remote settings and austere environments, which do not have sufficient medical infrastructure.

What are we offering?

Digital Medicine, Research Data Management, Mobile Applications and Mobile Sensor Data.
