ReVita is an app developed for individuals who have undergone surgery, specifically aimed at assisting in monitoring the intake of immunosuppressants and tracking vital medical parameters such as blood saturation, blood pressure, heart rate, and physical activity in real-time through the use of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things sensors.
The system is designed to promptly alert both the patient and medical professionals in case of any health issues related to the implants. In the future, the team plans to expand the scope of their project to encompass cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and heart attack.
