The researchers at CardioTech are working to reduce the consequences of cardiovascular disease through Smart Technology. The focus is on the entire life course, from prevention, to diagnosis and treatment. Data is the connecting element in the approach of the CadioTech researchers. For example, by following someone throughout their life and collecting data about that life, a 'digital twin' can be created. This data can be used in the treatment and, for example, in the coaching of a healthy lifestyle. Another theme within CardioTech is to move research in the hospital as much as possible to monitoring at home. Together with Leiden University Medical Center, for example, efforts are being made to improve home monitoring, to see whether patients can be safely rehabilitated at home as much as possible after an operation.
