Project Details


Osteoporosis is one of the women’s and the elderly’s chronic diseases. The most fundamental way of preventing osteoporosis is "prevention is better than cure." Our government has published "Osteoporosis Clinical Guidelines", and the guideline is also published in U.S. National Clinical Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC). Clinicians can refer this guideline to prevent osteoporosis, and diagnosis and treatment osteoporosis. Based on this guideline, this project will team up an interdisciplinary research team consisting of clinical care, information management, health fitness experts, to promote health community based on the information and communication technologies (ICT), clinical knowledge of osteoporosis. This project integrates the knowledge of health fitness, osteoporosis clinical knowledge and user acceptance of information technology, information and communications technologies, information security technologies, augmented reality technologies, to do the following seven research topics: 1. Establishing a clinical knowledge base of Osteoporosis diet and fitness. 2. Designing several security and privacy protection mechanisms for cloud computing platform. 3. Designing and implementing several augmented reality games for Osteoporosis fitness. 4. Designing and implementing a cloud-based and community-based self-management platform of Osteoporosis healthcare and healthcare promotion. 5. Studying the effectiveness of ICT-based Osteoporosis health literacy improvement. 6. Promoting health community for Osteoporosis. 7. Studying the user acceptance of technology for ICT-based Osteoporosis healthcare and promotion systems. Finally, this research project will deploy the developed systems to communities for promoting health community for Osteoporosis.
