Personalised Solutions for Traumatic Brain Injuries

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and a Consortium of leading research institutions across Europe are taking the treatment of traumatic brain injuries in a more individualised direction in the EU funded project TBIcare. A software solution that will be developed as part of the project will make it possible to match individual patient data with the injury’s characteristics, and thus ensure that each brain injury patient receives the best possible treatment. Due to a high degree of variation in the injuries of individual patients, the methods currently in use in the treatment of brain injury patients lack strong scientific evidence. Coordinated by VTT, the TBIcare project aims to develop methods to allow each brain injury patient to receive individual treatment that is optimised for his or her needs. The aim is to develop a tool that will make the day-to-day clinical work of doctors easier and also revolutionize the treatment of traumatic brain injury. The main objective of the project is to create a new type of software that will enable doctors to match the different variables describing the injury and the medical condition of the patient with each other. Using the extensive database and system simulation, the software will then form a detailed analysis of the nature of the patient’s brain injury and the necessary treatment.
