BioCom Lab is a research, development, commercialization, and think tank initiative of Acreo Swedish ICT AB and Linköping University to take a holistic approach towards an intra-body network, with a focus on e-health by integration of sensing, monitoring, prediction, analysis, data handling, and treatment. Utilizing key competence within Acreo Swedish ICT AB, Linköping University, and collaborators has created a bioelectronic smart system with novel components and unique functionalities. An intra-body network – a personalized web, comprised of sensors, bioelectronic actuators, and secure communication technology – is proposed. In part, this platform makes it possible to record and monitor our ambience, as well as a large number of critical health status parameters. Together with big-data analysis and suggested actuator and drug-delivery devices, a treatment regimen is derived that provides high-speed feedback between diagnosis and auto-regulated therapy. This platform will thus enable a radically new, dynamic, and highly-personalized approach to healthcare. The intra-body network will be supported by the ubiquitous mobile network and the resources of the “cloud”. The resulting smart system concept can be applied to an array of diseases, ranging from acute to chronic disorders. BioCom Lab will enable powerful tools to improve life quality, significantly reduce healthcare costs, and let human resources be refocused to where they matters most, the relational continuity with the patient.
In the BioCom Lab, industry and research organisations form a joint team to establish necessary technology and communication systems. Further, the initiative will include providers and organisations to develop and verify healthcare services. In the BioCom Lab, members participate on a mutually non-competitive basis; no members are competing on the same market or with similar products.
