Purpose and goal: We found out that Sensistep Better explanation of green cloud and BDA have been developed further with very promising results. The app of BDA has been used in all BDA data collection trials, but needs to be futher customised. We have not reach to goal to a predicted and prescribing algorithm yet but there are very interesting insights. There is no commercial outcome of the project but promising results. The consortium is going to continue the further development of Sensistep and BDA based CPS even after the conclusion of comfort. Expected results and effects: Sensistep and BDA was not at the same level of development when the project started. Sensistep was more go to the market ready and BDA was in TRL 4 but have during the project it has progressed to TRL 6. Lot has been learned, multiple prototypes have been developed. Lot of interesting data has been generated from measurements with BDA+Ultrasound and measurements with BDA+MicroCT. We have seen a significant increase in peak load of patients with feedback and we are able to distinguish patients rehabilitation plan after just one Sensistep session. Approach and implementation: Clinics in both countries were included for Sensistep and BDA measurements. Inclusion rate of patients was lower than expected, but still an efficient amount of patients has been included. The inclusion criteria worked fine both in both countries. Lower extremity trauma patients are hospitalized for longer term in Holland in comparison with the Swedish process. Included ultrasound measurements on volunteers to evaluate the BDA measurements in clinics. ´The time in the clinics´ as an end parameter was difficult to use because of external reasons influencing discharge date.
