On behalf of the IS-ACTIVE consortium, Inertia Technology has exhibited the technology developed in the project at the first edition of the Innovation Convention in Brussels.
IS-ACTIVE was selected as one of the 50 most innovative projects of 2011 in Europe and it was short-listed out of 450 applicants from various fields of applications.
The Innovation Convention marked the beginning of an ambitious plan of the European Commision to make research and innovation major motors for job creation and to achieve a sustainable exit from the current economic crisis. The event gathered around 1200 participants.
Inertia Technology presented the activity monitoring system and the exercise coaching component developed in IS-ACTIVE. Both system are based on the ProMove-3D wireless sensor platform, which was released as a commercial product this autumn. The systems are currently used by COPD patients in trials running in the three countries involved in the IS-ACTIVE consortium: The Netherlands, Romania and Norway.
The IS-ACTIVE stand at the Innovation Convention attracted numerous visitors who could get hands-on experience with the technology.
