Fujitsu, the global ICT giant, today announced a collaboration with three Irish research groups to work on KIDUKU, a sensor based healthcare project to help prevent falls in the elderly and gain a better understanding of chronic lung disease.

The new wearable healthcare sensors will monitor biological, physical and social aspects of a patient’s environment, in a home or community setting, enabling health care professionals to detect the early onset of disease, prescribe appropriate treatment regimes and drive down costs. 

The project will also seek to maximise the benefits of remote healthcare technology by improving communication among all parties involved in eldercare, including elderly patients, family members, primary care providers, and health care professionals.
