Stimulate continuous monitoring in personal and physical health

In our aging population, the number of surgeries performed is increasing rapidly. At the same time, there is a growing risk of complications, as patients are becoming frailer and have more comorbidities. In top sports, tracking the condition of athletes is essential to guide physical preparation. However, maladaptation to training, risks of injuries and adverse health events like sudden cardiac arrest are often reported in the news, affecting both elite as well as recreational athletes.
These problematic challenges deriving from the healthcare and sports domains may require solutions that have a lot more in common than it could be thought.
In the clinical community, preparing patients to be fit for surgery and rehabilitation generates a win-win situation for: i) payers in terms of healthcare cost savings, ii) patients in terms of health outcome and iii) clinicians in terms of workload, due to optimized speed of recovery and minimized chance of complications. In sports practice, preparing athletes to be fit for sport competition and recovery is a complex challenge, which requires insight into the fitness, recovery and psychological status of the individual.
