Chronolife and the Chugai
Pharma France laboratory aims to develop a smart textile for â€œreal-lifeâ€ monitoring
of the impact of chronic pathologies on patients’ articular health. The project has been initiated as part of the
second season of the Digital Pharma Lab programme under the partnership between
the two firms.
purpose of this device is to enable remote assistance and diagnosis in order to
promote the “continuum of care” between the hospital, the ambulatory
and a patient’s home. If successful, real-time processing of qualified alerts
will enable rapid and appropriate therapeutic decisions to be made in the event
of significant variations in the state of patients’ joint health, with the aim
to significantly improve their quality of life.
Chronolife designs and develops medical
devices and customized digital connected health solutions to optimize
diagnosis, monitoring and prediction of chronic pathologies. Founded in 2015
