It’s a database containing donated personal data and a platform where to manage this data. The purpose is to reuse the data for research and development.
The data from the database (body scans, information of the head sizes) was used in the COVID-19 crisis to produce specifications to facilitate mass manufacturing of reusable hygienic masks.
Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia is a non-profit research association transferring research knowledge to small and medium companies, specialising in obtaining data from people and designing products for people.
VALENCIA.DATA is a platform that increases people’s wellbeing and life-quality through a digital transformation while increasing the competitiveness of products and services offered by the Valencian business sector.
Principle 1: Success: The problem of how to manage and organise the different types of data was sorted by structuring it. Now people have access to their data and they know what there is.
Principle 2: Success: A prototype platform was tested with 500 individuals measuring different types of data and managing their consents.
Principle 3: Goals: Build more apps that show the data to the individuals in an understandable format.
Principle 4: Challenge: The data is not homogenous, so it takes manual labour to manage it.
Principle 6: Challenge: Some type of data is not easy to show to the people, like moving patterns. They need very specific software for presenting it.
