After an operation many patients are in a confused mental status at the intensive care unit.
In this status they possibly fall out of their bed or pull out endotracheal tubes or central
venous catheters accidentally. For this, they need permanently monitoring and control through
intensive care personnel.
The goal of the VIPSafe project is to develop robust techniques for automated patient
monitoring, that rely on data from a small number of untethered sensors, which are
nonetheless flexible enough to cope with a large variety of demands.
