URGENT ERA Per Med Call 2019: Italian R&D Institution is looking for a foreign SME with expertise in thermographic software analysis to be involved in a transnational research project on cryo-stimulation for obese patients

Country of Origin: Italy
Reference Number: RDIT20190507001
Publication Date: 7 May 2019

Summary

Italian Research Hospital located in Piedmont Region is looking for an SME with expertise in thermographic software analysis to be involved in a project proposal under the Call ERA Per Med 2019, which aims at improving the cure and methodologies for obese patients. The selected SME will be requested to develop a specific algorithm to be applied to thermographic instrumentation. Partner search is restricted to listed ERA Per Med member countries.

Description

There is some preliminary indirect evidence that cryo-stimulation may yield some therapeutic effects in obesity and that its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action may facilitate adaptive mechanisms of physical exercise in the obese subjects. The project is aimed at evaluating the effectiveness, in terms of weight loss, body composition, energy expenditure and functional capacity, of exposure to extreme cold through the use of a cryo-chamber for patients with morbid obesity undergoing a multidisciplinary rehabilitation program. Changes in body temperature, sympatric nervous activity, lipid metabolism, inflammatory status, oxydative stress, muscle metabolism will be investigated with state-of-the-art technologies. 

To complete the project consortium and access the second stage of the call for proposals, the project coordinator is looking for a foreign SME with proven expertise in the field of thermographic instrumentation, with particular reference to related software analysis. The selected partner will be asked to develop a specific algorithm that will be used to analyse thermal images to create artificial vision of specific regions of interest and reducing with machine learning approach failed images and bugs. The SME will contribute to the project through thermographic analyses and functional measurements with state-of-the-art technology at pre-post.
Please note that partner search is restricted to selected ERA Per Med member countries, listed in the dissemination section.

Deadline for EOIs: 24/05/2019

Deadline for full proposals submission: 17/06/2019
