6 Scenario Patients are remotely monitored using a series of small mobile and wearable devices constructed from an arrangement of existing sensors Information collected from these remote devices is made available using Grid technology Medical professionals have tools to analyse on- line medical information and are able to access these through remote interfaces.

7 Grid Research Agenda Making remote data available to the Grid in order that a wider scientific community can access scientific data as quickly as possible, often across variable bandwidth communication services Making Grid facilities available to remote users when these need to be delivered across lower bandwidth communication using devices with significant display and processor limitations

9 MIAS - Devices Exploring the development of mobile medical technologies that can be remotely connected onto a distributed grid infrastructure –Continuous monitoring of multiple signals via wearable devices –Periodic monitoring using Java phones and blood glucose measures All signals available to a broad community and can be processed using standard Grid Services

10 Asynchronous Mobile World Grid Services Java Phone + Blood Monitor Proxy Buffers Material for sending on Grid based Storage Services Standard Grid Service for feature detection Wearable Devices Proxy Converts Signals to database record Visualisation Services Display Grid protocol Patients Clinicians

11 Wearable Device Easy Plug and Play of Sensors Wireless connection using 802.11 Positioning information from GPS Nine wire sensor bus running through wearable to allow new sensors Sensor bus GPS aerial

12 Range of different sensors ECG Oxygen saturation Body movement –Accelerometers –GPS All plug and play to standard bus Changes reported to the underlying infrastructure

13 Blood Glucose Monitoring Exploring medical devices that rely on self-reporting Extends web based system developed by Oxford University and e-San Ltd Off-the-shelf GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) mobile phone Blood Glucose meter

14 Self Reporting Patient takes measurement Measurement sent via mobile phone to remote infrastructure Series of lifestyle questions asked as part of the clinical trial Users promoted for compliance. Current trial involves 100+ patients

15 Deploying on the Grid

16 Putting devices on the Grid Make devices and sensors available as if they were first class Grid Services Two new application-independent port types: – a generic sensor, – a generic device (assumed to host a number of sensors) Currently our devices require a proxy to match between these definitions and the sensor Project was an early GT3 adopter for prototype –Grid Service model worked –concerns about security

22 Related activities The Antarctic Lake Carbon Cycling project The Urban Pollution Monitoring Project See demonstrations or Advanced Grid Interfaces for Environmental e-Science in the Lab and in the Field

23 Live clinical record Readings appear as a live database Standard queries and interfaces can be used to manipulate the data On-line services used to process the data Exploits existing grid standards for reliability Presents a range of different interfaces for clinicians Provides range of feedback to patients.

24 Portal for Information Access Interactive access to live and stored information (e.g. visualised, excel) collected from wearable devices –For use by clinicians –Could be used by patients –Also needed by “pervasive support desk” Accessible via pervasive devices, e.g. phone Based on spatial model

25 Patient Proxy of Mobile clinician

28 Pervasive Semantic Grid

29 Pervasive applications need the Grid, e.g. Sensor Networks Grid applications need Pervasive Computing e.g. Smart Laboratory Grid and Pervasive share issues in large scale distributed systems. e.g. service description, discovery, composition; autonomic computing. These can be aided with semantics. Fundamentally about Interoperability and inference


31 Conclusion We have demonstrated the collection of medical and contextual data from wearable devices using Grid infrastructure We have demonstrated a means of access to that data by a variety of users including use of pervasive devices We have provided an illustration of the important relationship between Grid and Pervasive computing
