For the first time,D05 is investigating movement as a biomarker, i.e. objectifiable, measurable and quantifiable parameters that have diagnostic and predictive significance for the state of health, well-being and prognosis of palliative patients. These biomarkers are examined with patients in the laboratory and living lab of the palliative care unit. Contactless sensor technology allows scientific access to the last phase of life for the first time. Similarly,D05 is researching the sociological challenges of medical technology innovations in palliative care as a prototype for all health care sectors.
