Royal Philips Electronics announced that it will lead a new European Union (EU) funded research project aimed at improving care of heart patients through the development of innovative telemonitoring solutions.

Following the highly successful MyHeart project, the HeartCycle project will start on March 1, 2008, and will be one of the largest biomedical and healthcare research projects within the EU.

The HeartCycle consortium will work to improve the quality of care for coronary heart disease and heart failure patients by developing systems for monitoring their condition at home and involving them in the daily management of their disease.

These systems will comprise unobtrusive sensors built into the patient's clothing or bed sheets and home appliances such as weight scales and blood pressure monitors. The consortium aims to develop dedicated software that analyzes the acquired data, and that can be programmed to provide feedback on the patient's health status, plus his or her adherence to prescribed therapies and progress towards achieving health status milestones.

It also aims to develop mechanisms to report relevant data back to clinicians automatically so that they can prescribe personalized therapies and lifestyle recommendations.

Public and private partners from 18 research, academic, industrial and medical organizations from nine different European countries and China will team up in the project. HeartCycle will run for fouryears and has a budget of approximately EUR 21 million, of which approximately EUR 14 million will be funded by the European Union as part of the EU 7th Framework Program.
