Experts refer to innovative telemonitoring technologies to deal with chronic respiratory diseases, especially the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – COPD. In chronic respiratory diseases, sudden acute exacerbations may occur that can be life-threatening in some cases. Telemonitoring solutions help to detect the beginning of an impaired medical condition and can induce an adequate countermeasure in time. As soon as individually determined parameters are passed, appropriate warning signs can be transmitted. As part of a project, a new monitoring device for the detection of COPD-typical parameters has been utilized and optimized. Furthermore, an innovative 3D-Video-System was used to enable the implementation of physical exercises in the domestic environment. The systems assists the patient during the entire training unit and creates a feedback based on the quality of his or her exercises.
