The LifeChamps project aims to improve follow-up care for older people with cancer. We refer to them as Champions to honour how they continue to thrive despite the accumulated burden in their lives.
As part of Task 3.3 and aimed to support the development of the Lifechamps platform, the selection of sensing devices has been a challenging goal. Finally, we have developed criteria based on requirements drawn the use cases and the implementation constraints after several months of work.
The clinical needs have been identified through workshops and interviews with clinicians as well a literature studies. The criteria included evaluating Sensors from different categories across four dimensions: clinical, technical, economic, and user acceptance. Each dimension includes several criteria customised for selecting the best sensors for the different use cases within the LifeChamps project. We are excited to share the developed framework for sensor and device selection with the community shortly.
