Rapid uptake of Internet of Medical Things

The rapid uptake of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), in other words biometric monitoring, offers a lot of possibilities for healthcare professionals, athletes and people with physical demanding professions. In the US, 60 percent of the healthcare organizations are using IoMT devices to measure blood pressure, brain activity and body temperature.

Now biometric sensors are being applied to save lives, it is time for organizations to explore the possibilities. IoT expert Evalan underscores this in her newest whitepaper ‘Impacting health, safety and performance with IoT-based biometrics’.

Consumers use biometrics, like activity trackers, already for a long time. For healthcare, the innovative technologies such as data mining, live tracking and machine learning can be of great value. Athletes can also use biometrics to continually measure their health and improve their performance. By monitoring the blood pressure and body temperature of people with physically demanding professions such as soldiers and firefighters, action can be taken promptly and subsequently injuries can be prevented.

Henk Schwietert, CEO of Evalan: “We live in a dynamic, unpredictable world in which new technologies alternate continuously. By starting the implementation of biometrics and IoMT, (healthcare) organizations can distinguish themselves and improve the care and protection of their clients, employees or patients. IoMT changes the traditional forms of sports, work and care and will also derange existing revenue models. For an IoMT project to succeed, intensive cooperation between healthcare professionals and IoT experts is of great importance. Only then organizations will be able to benefit from their innovations”.

Evalan’s vision of capitalizing on the opportunities that the Internet of Medical Things has to offer, is incorporated in the white paper “Impacting health, safety and performance with IoT-based biometrics”.

Evalan manages the Smart Infrastructure of Unilever’s US Head Office

Evalan manages the Smart Infrastructure of Unilever’s US Head Office

Evalan contributed to the development of a state-of-the-art Head Office for Unilever in the US. The office, based in Englewood Cliffs, represents the workplace of the future, with open and shared spaces connected by sensors giving insight into the use of each floor. The Head Office was opened in 2018. Evalan manages the data and will add new functions to the sensor-system.

Sustainable energy, user efficiency and service optimization
Since 2015 Evalan, together with partners such as Edge Technologies, developed a smart building sensor-system to help sustainable energy consumption, user efficiency and service optimization. The sensor-system, also known as bGrid, is a wireless Bluetooth-system that collects data from the building and controls lights. Evalan delivered the bGrid-system to Unilever and implemented 15.000 sensors in the 325.000-square-foot building. The sensor-system allows building operators to optimize the use of each space based on real-time data. The Bluetooth-system interacts with a mobile app and users of the app can personalize the lighting and find empty work areas and meeting rooms.

‘Working in a very agile way’
In 2018, the implementation of the smart infrastructure in the building was realized. Now, Evalan helps Unilever to manage the system and to realize additional functions for the building. Ian Dunning, Workplace Director of Unilever North America, addresses the smart infrastructure and the efficiency it brings about: “For me probably the most unique feature in this building is the smart technology. We have about 3.500 devices around the building. They interact with your mobile phone and the application on it; you can be found, you can find colleagues and that really drives a new way of working, with people working in a very very agile way”.

New functions
Monitoring workspace occupation is one of the new functions that will be developed in 2019. It detects people in a workspace, to determine whether the space is available or occupied. The system also recognizes whether there are any personal belongings in the workspace to indicate that the person has temporarily left the workspace but is still using it. For Unilever this will provide real-time insight into the actual use of each workspace.

Workspace occupied? Check it with SmartEagle.

IoT-device to measure workspace occupation

Who doesn’t recognize the experience of looking for a workspace to work, study or to have a meeting with someone, but all of the seats are taken? It doesn’t matter how early you arrive at the office building, most of the workspaces are occupied, which results in an endless search for a desk or meeting room somewhere else. The question remains; will there be a free workspace in another building? Jan, a civil servant working in The Hague, emphasizes this problem and says to the Dutch daily newspaper Algemeen Dagblad “You get the feeling of competing in a jostle to obtain a spot, there are always less seats than people. If you are too late, no workspace will be available”. Evalan and Arend van de Stadt, innovator in vision systems, developed an IoT-solution to address this problem: SmartEagle.

How does SmartEagle work?
SmartEagle monitors workspace occupation. The device is trained to recognize objects such as laptops, cups and people. In this way the system detects whether there is a colleague in the room, not focusing on who is actually there and in which workspace they are: the data is fully anonymized. There are three statuses: Free, occupied and sign of life. The last one means that SmartEagle recognizes whether there are any personal belongings in the workspace to indicate that the person has temporarily left the workspace but is still using it. By means of a helicopter view of the room, the system detects the workspace occupation and transmits the data via the cloud to a smartphone or other interfaces.

SmartEagle is part of bGrid
SmartEagle can be installed as an extra functionality of the smart building solution bGrid. This solution consists of a wireless sensor network that measures the lighting and temperature in office spaces. Employees can manage the lighting and temperature via an app. The IoT-solution offers an extra option in the bGrid-system. SmartEagle can also be used as a separate system.

Insights for facility management
SmartEagle simplifies the process of looking for a workspace. Besides this, the facility manager gains insights that lead to more efficiency and less costs. Questions as ‘What is the percentage of occupied workspaces?’, ‘Are there too many or too few spaces?’ ‘Can I clean more efficiently?’ and ‘Is it possible to rent fewer spaces?’ can be answered with SmartEagle.

BLE Connectivity for Danfoss NovoCon Actuator

Danfoss recently introduced the NovoCon digital actuator, designed for hydronic balancing and control. This actuator fits Danfoss’ AB-CM valve. This combination is an accurate and cost-effective system of flow measurement and flow control, which aligns with the control infrastructure that is currently commonly used in buildings.

To enhance the competitive advantages of the NovoCon actuator for use in buildings, Evalan is creating Bluetooth Connectivity (“BLE”) for the actuator. Adding BLE to the actuator will enable Danfoss to achieve several significant advantages, including (A) direct connectivity with innovations in Smart Building technology, (B) the ability to lower the overall costs of building control systems by eliminating cables and some control equipment, (C) the ability to create stand-alone room control systems that do not require use of third party equipment and (D) the ability to become fully integrated into Evalan’s bGrid™ solution which will make NovoCon the actuator of choice for new bGrid projects.

Through the BLE communication channel the NovoCon actuator can receive set-points, calibration instructions, configuration settings and other information, and can return information about operational conditions. Some of this information is exchanged periodically, but some changes are communicated instantaneously.

bGrid installed in the Office of Microsoft at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport

Evalan’s bGrid system has been installed in the offices of Microsoft at Schiphol Amsterdam Airport. This innovation will turn the building into ‘a type of smartphone that allows for the installation of apps’, according to Jan Willem Weissink, the director of Schiphol Real Estate. One of those apps is MAPIQ, which enables users to find each other in the building, to locate empty desks and to book meeting rooms.

With this smart technology Microsoft wants to lead the way to office environments that are geared towards “activity based working” – a new way of communicating and networking. Computable recently wrote about this projecy – see Smart Airport City.


Blog: Why should companies start embracing smart machine technology now?

Asking why you should embrace smart machine technology now is like going back five or so years and asking whether it really makes sense to get a smart phone. Like most industry observers, at Evalan we are convinced reality will soon overtake whatever hesitations there may be about the reshaping of industry by IoT. Companies that have started out on this path confirm this. So one reason to introduce smart technology is that it has done what it claimed it would do for organisations: reduce cost, improve efficiency, increase control, raise profits, raise customer satisfaction and create opportunities for new and more sustainable business models.

Answer to economic crisis

Looking at the  IoT growth expectations, IoT could be the answer to the economic crisis as expectations regarding the growth and the economic and technological impact of IoT solutions, smart factories and smart machines are high. Estimates as to IoT market growth in the coming years vary widely, but are all impressive. Leading research and consultancy company Gartner, Inc. has forecasted that 8.4 billion connected things would be in use worldwide in 2017, up 31 percent from 2016, and that the number will reach a staggering 20.4 billion by 2020.

Efficiency and energy efficiency are becoming central values

The second reason to embrace IoT is that from the many reports being published on IoT, one clear and indisputable fact emerges: IoT is unavoidable, sweeping and will bring huge changes to consumers, cities, retailers, industries and society as a whole. Even if you are not a tech company, IoT devices are going to impact how you do business.

IoT can help you adapt to changing markets

A third reason is the major role smart machines and IoT solutions can play in today’s energy challenges. Efficiency and energy efficiency are becoming central values. And as we grapple with depletion of natural resources, growing populations and growing economic demands, efficiency – and especially energy efficiency – is becoming vital to business. Experts expect global demand for energy to have doubled by 2050. For industries, cost reduction, resource management and energy efficiency are essential disciplines. Smart machines and IoT solutions can play a major role in this development.

 

If these reasons seem plausible to you and you would like to discover how your company can benefit from IoT, we offer a White Paper with much more information. Or you can contact us direct.

New Smart Building Solution Delivered

Last week, Evalan completed the new smart building solution, bGrid™, in an OVG Real Estate building. OVG develops smart, high-tech office buildings with a sustainable footprint. One of OVG’s core objectives in the development of these buildings is creating healthier working environments, with added value solutions for the building’s occupants, by using smart technology. OVG successfully achieved this objective in “The Edge”, a recently completed office building at the Amsterdam “Zuidas” that is considered to be one of the greenest and smartest office buildings in the world. OVG continued on this path of innovation in smart building technology in its new project SPARK, an office building located near the Sloterdijk train station in Amsterdam.

bGrid™ Solution

For the SPARK building OVG chose to implement bGrid™ to power its central communications infrastructure in the building. bGrid™ is a Wireless Sensor Network Solution that combines technical functions with user interaction functions. In the bGrid™ concept, “nodes” are placed in a high density network throughout the building. These nodes collect sensor information, act as beacons, interact with elements such as displays and actuators, control lamps and record locations of BLE  devices. They send their information to gateways, and receive instructions from these gateways to control their operating mode.

Customized

The bGrid™ solution has been developed by Evalan and customized for OVG. In SPARK it has been integrated on a large scale in the building’s lighting system. In this process, Evalan has worked closely together with OVG Real Estate, Deerns, Philips, Mapiq and HCRT.

 

OneLogistics – Supply Chain Management F-35

Evalan has joint the OneLogistics Program. This program is the Dutch proposal for managing the Supply Chain Support System for the European Operations of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter airplane.

In June 2016 a Letter of Intent (LOI) was signed by a broad Dutch consortium of partners who are related to the field of F-35 sustainment logistics, to form the OneLogistics Program. The LOI was also signed by the Dutch Ministry of Defense, the Customs Administration of The Netherlands, the Province of Brabant and by several funding organizations. The initiative is furthermore supported by the Dutch Ministry of Economics .

By combining an extraordinary team of defense, logistics, customs/VAT and compliance specialist partners, OneLogistics brings global supply chain expertise to complex systems such as the European F-35 program.

The OneLogistics Program consists of 35 elements. One of these elements, Asset Visibility, is managed by Evalan.

More information about the OneLogistics Program can be found here.

 

Patent for Automated Building Commissioning Technology

Evalan has received a patent for technology that can deliver a significant reduction in commissioning time of new buildings. This technology uses the infrastructure of the bGridTM-system, which Evalan developed for smart building applications. With this technology it is possible to automate the identification of sensors and actuators in the building. This eliminates the effort that is currently required for identifying each of the individual control loops of the building management system.

Evalan will include this technology in future bGridTM implementations. This technology will also be of value for maintenance and troubleshooting during the lifetime of the building.

Sensemedic in Hong Kong

Evalan started delivering Sensemedic services in Hong Kong to lung cancer patients. These services are delivered as part of a trial project with 200 patients.

Sensemedic is Evalan’s “Real Time Medication Monitoring” system which supports medication adherence improvements. Each participating patient uses Sensemedic’s smart medication dispenser that collects medication intake information in real time. This enables Sensemedic to provide smart reminding functions to the patient, and to deliver detailed information about medication intake to designated healthcare professionals so they can guide and support patients from existing behaviour towards a better intake pattern.

For the project in Hong Kong, Sensemedic’s portal functionalities were expanded to include questionnaires, which are sent periodically to patients in accordance with the trial schedule.

This project will run for at least 2 years.

ITEA Award of Excellence

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.

 

Evalan and Deerns establish bGrid

Evalan and Deerns have formed bGrid, a new company that offers Smart Building solutions. bGrid’s solutions create infrastructures that enable new functions to the users of buildings  and that optimize their performance.

bGrid is built on the belief that technology can change a building into the Personal Assistant of its user, making work more effective, pleasant, safe and sustainable. bGrid achieves this through the deployment of smart sensor networks, which are integrated with the Building Management System on one end, and interact with individual users on the other. This delivers functions such as smart lighting and climate control, positioning of business resources (asset tracking), measuring building usage and optimising security. The network enables Apps with which users can find colleagues, locate empty desks and reserve meeting rooms.

A Smart Building that supports users

BGrid is located in Amsterdam and will be managed by Wouter Kok, who was previously Director at Deerns Nederland. “A smart building is a building that breathes, nurtures and supports” is how Kok expresses his vision for bGrid.  “It responds to its users’ actual needs, and lets its users flourish. Enabled by continuous interaction between the users and their environment.”

Smart Building Technology

Evalan is an innovation company that provides state-of-the-art IoT technologies based on real time, wireless measurements and monitoring. Deerns is an engineering consultancy that focusses on the world of real-estate since 1928. Evalan and Deerns have worked on Smart Building technology since 2010. For more information see www.bgridsolutions.com. For more information about Deerns, see www.deerns.nl

FDA Approval Sensemedic for US

Evalan has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to distribute and sell Sensemedic to the US market. Sensemedic has been available in Europe, Asia and Africa since 2007 and will now also be available in the US.

Support patients towards a better intake pattern

Sensemedic is smart medication reminding system that can improve medication adherence. It uses a proprietary medication dispenser with real-time communication technology. This dispenser monitors the intake behaviour of patients. The information that is collected by the dispenser makes it possible to remind patients to take their medication if they forget, and for healthcare professionals to guide and support patients from existing behaviour towards a better intake pattern.

Evalan helps pharmaceutical companies and research institutes

Evalan offers Sensemedic to healthcare institutions, pharmaceutical companies and research institutes. The FDA approval is an important step for Sensemedic as there is significant interest in the US for systems that help improve medication adherence. This interest is also driven by a desire to introduce more self-management in patient care, and by concerns about rising healthcare costs.

 

Smart Campus Solution for Drenthe College

Evalan implemented a state-of-the-art IoT solution in a school building in Meppel for Drenthe College. Drenthe College chose this solution to gain more insight into the occupation of rooms, to make it easier to book or reschedule a room and to support students better during their study. Based on our sensor measurements, class rooms can be booked, temperatures can be adjusted and the light intensity can be changed. This leads to a better occupation of rooms, more efficiency and a better room planning.

Evalan realized this Smart Campus Solution by working together with Winvision and Microsoft. Microsoft made a video about the Smart Campus Solution:

 

Smart Office Solution in the Edge

Evalan developed an IoT infrastructure for OVG Real Estate in the Edge, an office building in Amsterdam. OVG Real Estate develops smart, high-tech office buildings with a sustainable footprint. One of OVG’s core objectives in the development of these buildings is creating healthier working environments, with added value solutions for the building’s occupants, by using smart technology. OVG successfully achieved this objective in “The Edge”, an office building at the Amsterdam “Zuidas” that was completed in 2014 and is considered to be one of the greenest and smartest office buildings in the world.  Evalan’s IoT infrastructure makes it possible to find empty workspaces, find colleagues and book meeting rooms. The work space can be personalized by adjusting the temperature and controlling the lights.

In a video made by CNN, more features of the Edge are explained. “The Edge is more than a building, it is a living structure. A building that learns about our habits.” according to CNN. “And as the Edge has learned about our habits at work, we have learned from the Edge. In designing better buildings and ultimately a better way of life.”

 

 

 

 

Smart SPARK Building

 

Evalan is developing and implementing a new smart sensor solution in the OVG SPARK building to help transform it into one of the most advanced office buildings in the Netherlands. In SPARK, the human user is key. Users have individual control over lighting and heating through an app. The ventilation in conference rooms is automatically adjusted based on the monitoring of CO2 levels. The building also anticipates presence by using Bluetooth.

Evalan realizes a unique combination of functionalities in one smart sensor network, by using sensors that interact with user devices present, gather the data in real time and interact with these devices through applications. By using real-time information, it’s possible to instantly respond and anticipate. The functionalities consist of sensors that measure temperature, relative humidity, ambient light, CO2 level and presence (PIR) at the same time, beacons to tell the location to the user and localization to locate devices and persons within +/- 2 meter.

This solution is custom made for OVG and is integrated on a large scale in the building’s lighting system. In order to implement this, Evalan works closely together with OVG Real Estate, Deerns, Winvision, Mapiq and HCRT.

Pipeline Monitoring Pilot Project

Evalan is developing a new sensor system for Vitens to measure water flows in pipelines and detect the location of failures based on vibration measurements. The vibration measurements will give extensive insight in the condition of the flow of fluids through pipelines, detect disturbances in an early stage, correlate problems to vibration patterns and maps possible deviations. To do this, battery powered, wireless sensor nodes will be placed on specific spots on the pipelines.

The sensors measure real-time vibrations, process the data locally and send the results wirelessly to a back-end system or server where the data will be saved. A dashboard is made to show the vibration patterns. By monitoring the vibration behaviour over time, process deviations can be detected in an early stage, preventing down time and expensive repairs.

This solution suits the main goal of Vitens to guarantee the water supply to their customers and to minimize the possibilities of leakages. By identifying the occurrence and timing of out-of-the-ordinary events as soon as possible and even predict them to prevent them from happening, Evalan helps Vitens to maintain and improve their optimal water distribution network.

Pipeline Monitoring Pilot Project

European Grant for SensiStep

The UMC Utrecht and Evalan BV have secured European funding for the COMFORT project within the Eurostars Program. During the three-year COMFORT (COMplex Fracture Orthopeadic Rehabilitation) project a rehabilitation program for patients with hip fractures will be developed by the Department of Surgery at the UMC Utrecht, Evalan BV and two Swedish institutions, that helps patients to rehabilitate faster using innovative technologies. The force sensor SensiStep, developed jointly by the UMC Utrecht and Evalan, plays a central role in the project. The clinical studies in this large project will be executed by Marco Raaben, Clinical Technologist, and coordinated by dr Taco Blokhuis, trauma surgeon at the Department of Surgery.

The rehabilitation program uses three innovations: the SensiStep, a force sensor with wireless communication that allows force (load) during daily exercises to be registered in real time, a bone density meter based on microwave technology suitable for regular use and a computer application with intelligent software. To develop the technologies data is collected from 200 rehabilitation patients in multiple rehabilitation institutions in the Netherlands and Sweden. Using these data intelligent software will be developed, with which an algorithm for optimal support of rehabilitation is drawn up. During the last phase of the project the rehabilitation program is validated in a trial, which also reviews the user aspects of the system.

Each year approximately 600.000 people in Europe break a hip. This number increases because of the aging population. The rehabilitation of these patients is hindered by the lack of systems that support these patients and the lack of objective methods to determine the progress of the rehabilitation. This leads to considerable delays in the rehabilitation and to high costs. The rehabilitation program of COMFORT is intended to accelerate the reduction of these patients have to go home, and hence in addition to improvements in health care also to provide a considerable cost savings.

 

The UMC Utrecht and Evalan BV have secured European funding for the COMFORT project within the Eurostars Program.

Fleet Management for Golf Carts

Fleet Management for Golf Carts

 

Evalan launches a Fleet Management solution for moving assets. This solution includes real-time location based services, as well as a host of maintenance- and operations functions. The solution is especially useful for fleets that are distributed over many locations.

The organisation Handicart will be the first user of this system. Handicart owns and operates about 700 golf carts which are stationed at 120 golf courses in The Netherlands. These carts can be rented for a small fee by people that are unable to walk an entire round, due to age or physical impairment.

There are currently about 20,000 members that have registered with Handicart as user of these carts. Use of the Fleet Management system enables Handicart to better control its operation, keep track of cart use, improve its billing accuracy, extend cart lifetime and facilitate processes such as damage repair.

The Fleet Management solution will be launched in phases, starting January 2016.

Evalan measures physical burdening Military

In cooperation with the Royal Dutch Army and the University of Twente, Evalan has kicked off the ARMOR project. ARMOR is a National Technology Project financed by the Department of Defence of The Netherlands.

In the ARMOR project a new system will be developed that can determine the physical condition, endurance and resilience of military personnel during training. Different sensors will be integrated in the system to record various physiological parameters of soldiers while they participate in training missions. The measurements collected by these sensors will be processed with advanced algorithms developed by the Dutch Army and by University of Twente’s research centre for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine (MIRA).

The ARMOR system intends to support the army in reducing the number of injuries that soldiers incur during training, and to help optimize training programs. Eventually the system could also be used to individualize training for soldiers. One of the key innovations that is incorporated in the system is use of Evalan’s pressure sensor. This sensor will be integrated in the boots that are used by the Dutch Army, and will enable the continuous monitoring of the load that soldiers are carrying.

Evalan in MKB top 100 for Innovation

Evalan has been recognized by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce as one of the 100 most innovative companies in The Netherlands. This recognition was given for Evalan’s development of SensiStep.

Evalan in MKB top 100 for Innovation

 

SensiStep is a system that helps patients rehabilitating after hip, ankle or leg surgeries. These patients typically need to limit the loading they exert on their affected limb. SensiStep monitors this loading with an innovative force sensor, and guides the patient towards an optimal loading pattern during the rehabilitation by providing continuous feedback. In addition to the force sensor the system, consists of an on-body data aggregator and an app. The system is supported by a Web Portal, that enables healthcare professionals to monitor patients remotely. Data communication is wireless, via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

“Elderly with hip fractures need to stay in a care facility while they are recovering. With SensiStep these patients can recover faster, and return home sooner. This improves the quality of care and reduces healthcare costs” says Marleen Germs, Evalan’s product manager for SensiStep.

SensiStep has been developed in cooperation with the University Medical Centre of Utrecht and Pontes Medical. It received CE certification in December 2013 and has been offered to physiotherapists since that date. SensiStep will be ready for roll-out to other healthcare professionals later this year.
