AFrame Digital Receives 2nd Award

AFrame Digital, Inc., a provider of wireless mobile monitoring received its second Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund Award for mHealth innovation from the Virginia Center for Innovative Technology. AFrame Digital supports the safety, independence and health of patients and residents in hospitals, long term care, senior living, and home settings.

AFrame digital will use the award to expand the scope of a telemonitoring study it is leading with healthcare providers and researchers from Commonwealth Care of Roanoke, Florida State University, George Mason University, and Washington D.C’s Healthcare for the Homebound. The team is conducting the research under a grant from NIH’s National Institute on Aging.

 “As the U.S. population 65 years and older increases, it will become extremely important for telemonitoring solutions to integrate not only clinical factors such as physiological data but also other important aspects of wellness including activity levels, sleep patterns, and behavior patterns into analytical models that trend and alert on changes in health status,” explains Amy Papadopoulos, DSc, the Principal Investigator for the project and Senior Researcher at AFrame Digital. “The CRCF award allows us to expand the behavioral parameters that we can examine during the NIH study in order to determine and maintain wellness.”

“AFrame digital is very appreciative of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s recognition of our efforts to develop and commercialize cost-effective, easy-to-use mHealth innovations that improve clinical outcomes and the quality of life for our citizens,” said Cindy Crump, AFrame Digital Founder, President, and CEO.
