The partners of the IMPALA project are collaborating to lower the staggering amount of preventable child deaths.
This interdisciplinary project will develop a sturdy, easy-to-use, affordable, high-tech monitor that can be implemented in settings with limited resources and capacity.
We will enable healthcare workers to recognize and intervene early in case of critical illness by developing and integrating predictive algorithms which predict clinical deterioration. Because this will be done automatically the need for extensive training will be reduced.
We have estimated that our system could save up to 1 million children’s lives per year.
