Paris : un service de conciergerie connectée arrive dans le métro On appelle cela des « conciergeries 3.0 » et la RATP a décidé de s'inscrire dans cette tendance en lançant la première conciergerie connectée du réseau de transport parisien, à la station de métro Opéra. Après avoir acheté une prestation de conciergerie sur leur Smartphone ou leur ordinateur (cordonnerie, retouche, pressing...), les usagers pourront laisser leurs chaussures ou vêtements dans ce nouveau lieu de dépôt élaboré en lien avec la société Quatre Epingles, spécialiste du secteur. Ils les récupéreront sous 48 heures, par exemple en fin de journée, en revenant de leur travail. La RATP n'en est pas à son coup d'essai en matière de conciergerie innovante. En 2014, elle avait lancé un service permettant aux usagers d'acheter un produit chez les commerçants présents sur le site et de les récupérer à la boutique de la station de métro Mairie de Montrouge.

Health Tracking Gets More Up-Close And Personal With Tiny Blood Monitor Implant I thought it was impressive that Withings now offers an affordable home scale that tracks your body fat percentage and heart rate, but scientists have developed a tiny Bluetooth-capable blood monitoring device that resides comfortably under the skin, according to the BBC this morning. It’s likely to go into testing with intensive care patients soon, but it’s an example of how intense home health monitoring could get over the course of the next few years. The device was created by a team of Swiss medical scientists, and is designed to be installed (that really is the most appropriate term here) in a patient’s abdomen, leg or arm skin, using only a needle. It can last for months, and reports back information about blood glucose and cholesterol levels, so as you might imagine it would be extremely useful for patients with chronic conditions like diabetes who are used to having to draw blood on a much more regular basis.

Biostamp, le patch connecté qui remplace le carnet de santé Adieu la wearable technology encombrante et ridicule, place aux objets connectés portables et discrets. Cette fois, il ne s'agit ni d'un bracelet intelligent, ni d'un anneau connecté mais d'un patch. En effet, la start-up MC10 développe, en partenariat avec Ericsson, le Biostamp qui est un patch adhésif intelligent aussi fin qu'un pansement et aussi large que deux timbres-poste. medissimo Since 2004, medissimo provides more than 700 pharmacists and partners, including nursing homes, pill dispenserses devices associated with their information system as well as materials for their preparation and use. medissimo was founded from an ambition : decrease drug iatrogenic effects due to drug bad consumption. This is particularly the case in nursing homes, but it also exists for more than one million patients staying at home with chronic illnesses. This inappropriate consumption is the direct cause of over 5,000 deaths and over 130,000 hospitalizations days per year in France. Through an active policy of research and development, medissimo innovates, develops and distributes a practical solution for good patient compliance.

fastcoexist If you dial 112 in Stockholm—the European equivalent of 911—and report a heart attack victim, it won't take long for an ambulance to show up. But a volunteer might to get there first. A new app uses GPS to ping anyone from a network of thousands of CPR-trained "lifesavers" who happens to be in the neighborhood. "In short, every second counts," says Rasmus Sellberg, strategy director for Daytona, the Swedish digital agency that worked with medical researchers to develop the app. "Bystander CPR dramatically increases survival rates. It's a matter of life or death."

Home - Hocoma 4.2 Les différentes méthodes 4.2 Les différentes méthodes La pratique du design de services est actuellement difficile à définir et à encadrer : soit parce qu’on essaye de mettre tous les aspects dans la même définition, ou soit parce que ces aspects sont trop spécifiques (MARSH 2009). Hempe (2011) souligne cependant que tous les processus de design de services sont des voies structurées vers la génération de solutions qui répondent efficacement à certains besoins.
