Abstract

This paper presents an advanced long-range low-power Internet of Things wearable temperature sensor to evaluate and predict the likelihood of a heart failure event in high-risk patients. Initial trials have validated the potential of long-range long-term personalized community-based monitoring with smart intervention decision making. The intelligent device implements machine learning to understand the user’s activities of Daily Living (ADL) and their environment; using this information coupled with their body temperature allows the system to evaluate and predict the likelihood of a heart failure event. The solution is based upon the European 868 MHz LoRaWAN standard. As Ulster University roll out a regional LoRaWAN “Things Connected” network across Northern Ireland (owned by Digital Catapult, UK) the embryonic solution will be tested on a larger scale for both home based monitoring as well as patients undertaking daily living activities.
