Evalan has received the ITEA Award of Excellence. ITEA recognized Evalan for its management of a large innovation project, the MoSHCA project, that focused on the development of solutions for patient self-management and treatment of patients at home. This project was executed in a consortium with 10 partners from 5 countries, consisting of universities, companies and knowledge institutes.
The award was presented by Philippe Letellier, ITEA’s vice chairman, at the ITEA session of the Digital Innovation Forum 2017. After receiving the award, Henk Schwietert of Evalan presented an overview of the highlights of this project. These include the development of an Epilepsy App, a mobile phone application that can detect epileptic seizures by advanced sound analysis and then alerts care givers, and technology for real-time monitoring of the weight a person exerts on a leg while walking. This technology was used in SensiStep, a product for rehabilitation support that Evalan launched during the MoSHCA project.
ITEA is the EUREKA Cluster program that supports innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects in the area of Software-intensive Systems. Each year about twenty projects are selected by ITEA. During DIF 2017 three other ITEA projects were also recognized with Awards of Excellence. These were managed by Philips, Daimler and Engie.
