Scope of the exercise

In this exercise you will get the hands-on experience to implement state-of-the art digital health applications. As a starting point, you will get introduced to three digital health application use cases that have been developed during the TuK-Seminar of the last semester. These applications include:


  • Afib: detection of atrial fibrillation using fitness heart rate sensors
  • StrokeHub: aftercare for stroke patients
  • Breast Cancer Companion: personalized knowledge and recommendation portal for cancer treatment optimization

These applications can be implemented in iOS, Android, or HTML5/JS. Depending on the use case, either a native mobile and/or a web application is applicable. 

As a backend and data infrastructure, these applications will use the Gesundheitscloud platform that provides and API and SDK for application development.


The final grading will consist of the following individual parts: 

  • Implementation of digital health application
  • Project documentation
