Smart health | MigraineNet

WINGS ICT Solutions designed and developed MigraineNet aiming to offer a technology that

  • reduces healthcare delivery cost;
  • opens up the access to (self-)care;
  • drives a healthier lifestyle adoption; and
  • realizes new disruptive business models.

Migraine, as a neurological disorder, listed by WHO (World Health Organization) among the 8 most disabling diseases, causing high medical costs, loss of productivity and significant negative societal impacts was selected as the 1st use case that this technology focused on.

MigraineNet is a novel cloud platform, offered to migraineurs as a mobile application, that

  • calculates the possibilities and predicts when the next migraine incident will occur by analyzing the underlying information models and the user’s daily activities/habits;
  • predicts and prioritizes the most possible causes that apply in the migraine instance of the user;
  • suggests ways to relief the migraine (e.g., dietary suggestions, physical activities, relaxation techniques involving actuators when possible);
  • guides the user to nearby pharmacies/doctor;
  • proposes relevant articles; and
  • supports calendar view and extraction of logged past incidents.

Technically, MigraineNet platform relies on

  • 3 heterogeneous kinds of information: a) personal information such as the individual’s sex, age, habits and other known medical/environmental/working conditions; b) the user’s daily habits; and c) information from other users with similar characteristics;
  • FIWARE technologies and enablers for collecting and managing the data;
  • 2 technical components customized by WINGS for knowledge building, data analysis and predictions; and
  • User-friendly personalized mobile interfaces.

Dr. M. Vikelis and Dr. M. Dermitzakis, experienced neurologists and members of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic Headache Society (http://www.kefalalgia.gr/), acted as health consultants during the design of the system so as to ensure its scientific validity.
