Development of a Physiological and Environmental Information Processing Platform and its Application to the Metabolic Syndrome Measures

Research Project Outline

The purpose of this research project is to develop a novel information processing platform to simultaneously record physiological and environmental data in one's daily life and objectively confirm one's lifestyle habits. Fundamental technologies in the areas of data collection using wearable sensors and data mining for screening of health risks will be developed. As an example of the expected project outputs, the relationship between various physiological and environmental data and the metabolic syndrome condition will be investigated and the results will be used to devise new strategies to improve patients' lifestyle habits. Particularly, new concepts of personal healthcare services that could prevent and treat the metabolic syndrome condition will be proposed and the effectiveness of the new concepts will be verified by demonstration experiments.
