Validation and usability of AIDMED - telemedical system for cardiological and pulmonary diseases




telemedicine, m-health, e-health, COVID-19


Aim: The aim of this paper is to present the results of the validation of AIDMED as a telemedical system, i.e. its capability in faithful registration of biomedical signals, its acquisition in a telemedical scenario and its representation in online application. Usability of such
a tool for a dedicated population was also assessed.
Methods: We describe and discuss functionalities provided by AIDMED. We perform a series of experiments where we measure biological signals with AIDMED and with a reference device. We provide statistical analysis of experiments. We also compare the functionality of AIDMED with other similar solutions. We discuss the usability of AIDMED in tele observation of COVID-19 patients.
Results: We show diagnostic equivalence of AIDMED device and reference devices.
Moreover, we indicate advantages of AIDMED system (as task management and patient’s feedback via mobile app) for at home telemonitoring in comparison to standard of care.
Conclusions: AIDMED system provides an integrated platform which enables observation of COVID-19, cardiological and pulmonary patients and many more. Thus, an opportunity for both better quality of care and better subjective patient satisfaction with use of AIDMED has got a solid foundation.
