This is the REACTION project

The aim of the REACTION project was to develop an integrated ICT platform that supports improved long term management of diabetes based on wearable, continuous blood glucose monitoring sensors and automated closed-loop delivery of insulin.

The REACTION platform presents an interoperable peer-to-peer communication platform based on Service Oriented Architecture (SoA) using cloud-enabling midddleware. It will feature a Model Driven Application Development environment based on extensive use of dynamic ontologies.

The REACTION platform provides integrated, professional, management and therapy services to diabetes patients in different healthcare regimes across Europe, including 1) professional decision support for in-hospital environments, 2) safety monitoring for dosage and compliance, 3) long term management of outpatients in clinical schemes, 4) care of acute diabetic conditions and 5) support for self management and life-style changes for diabetic patients.

The project ended on 28th February 2014, however, this website will be updated occasionally.

Research award for the GlucoTab

The Medical University of Graz (MUG) and Joanneum Research (MSG) have won a scientific prize for the GlucoTab® System awarded by the federal state of Styria, Austria. The award ceremony took place on 5th May 2014.

Brochure and final newsletter released

Read about the main achievements in REACTION including 22 specific results which can be combined in various ways for different users in the wide domain of diabetes management. See the brochure. Read the newsletter.

Video demonstrating the REACTION Nutrition App

The REACTION Nutrition App is an Android based mobile and tablet app for managing diet and nutrition with special focus on carbohydrates which have a great impact on the well-being of people with diabetes.

REACTION at one of the largest Danish events on eHealth

E-sundhedsobservatoriet (The eHealth Observatory), which took place on 2nd and 3rd December, is one of the most important eHealth conferences in Denmark. REACTION partners exhibited at the conference, demonstrating REACTION services such as the GlucoTab and ePatch technology. Partner IN-JET also made an oral presentation on the need for revised care models when incorporating telemonitoring.

REACTION hosts successful workshop on Implementation of Telemedicine Solutions

On November 13 the REACTION project hosted a training workshop for business managers. The workshop took place in Denmark, with facilities provided by REACTION partner DELTA, attracting about 30 participants from the private and public sector in Denmark and Sweden.

IST-Africa Call for papers

Presentations available from the Clustering event on Ambient Intelligence Advanced Technologies in Support of Healthcare and Assisted Living

25 eHealth projects participated in the clustering event organised by REACTION and partner FORTH-ICS on 26-27. September 2013 in Heraklion, Greece. You can find the presentations in the Download section

REACTION newsletter out now

Read about the start of the primary care pilot offering 203 diabetes patients access to a range of REACTION health services. Look into how the decision support system, GlucoTab, has been developed for doctors and nurses to improve hospital workflow and optimise insulin therapy. You can also read about in-hospital authorisation and access control and about mathematical models of the glucose insulin metabolism.

Paper accepted for publication in Journal of Diabetes and its Complications

REACTION has had a paper on risk models for diabetes complications accepted for publication in the Journal of Diabetes and its Complications.

The paper is titled 'A systematic review of predictive risk models for diabetes
complications based on large scale clinical studies' and is authored by the Institute of Computer Science from the Foundation for Research and Technology and Chorleywood Health Centre.

REACTION online demonstrators now on the website

The REACTION project is planning to develop online demonstrators of selected features of the REACTION platform. The demonstrators will be available here on the project's website as part of the dissemination efforts. The first demonstrator is now available. Click on the item 'Online demonstrators' in the menu to the left.

REACTION videos now on the website

The REACTION project will produce a number of videos as part of the project's dissemination of results to the public.

The first video is now available on the website.

The video shows safe glucaemic control in the hospital ward, which was the subject of the first year's prototype demonstrator. In the general ward, a REACTION application monitors a range of parameters including glucose level, nutritional intake as well as measures of administered drugs (e.g. oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin) among other parameters (e.g. insulin sensitivity).
