Linneaus University offers a seminar on eHealth and research about a digital twin

17/02/2021 | Linnaeus Well-Being

The eHealth Institute of Linnaeus University together with Gunnar Cedersund are hosting a seminar on the concept of the digital twin and how one can look inside one’s body and create a digital image of oneself. The seminar is scheduled for February 25th (Thursday) from 2:30 pm till 4 pm (CET).

The digital twin is an expert companion that moves along with the patient. It collects data from the living twin and updates it into the digital twin. The digital twin can be of use for healthcare providers and/or patients themselves to track their activity. For example, if patients start to exercise more or go on a diet, the digital twin will show the results in the data.

The digital twin can be of help to physicians, too; for instance, when wanting to test the use of a new drug or treatment, a test run can be done with the digital twin first to calculate risks better.

The digital twin is based on a mathematical model combining the data from the human brain, liver functions, beta cells, fat tissue, muscle metabolism, blood flow and the heart.

The seminar will take place on Thursday, February 25th2:30 pm till 4 pm (CET) via Zoom. Associate Professor Gunnar Cedersund will present his 20 years of research in the field.
