Advanced technologies for helping the elderly
Frailty of the ageing population: a problem for Europe
City4Age monitors behaviour and foster health
Data are collected automatically in an unobtrusive way
Self-improvement, social prevention, active help
Aged individuals, their families, care givers and medical staff: constantly connected
Several ways for prevention
Smart Cities generate rapidly increasing volumes of data
Other data can be collected via unobtrusive sensors
Behaviour changes can be monitored automatically interpreting data
Prevention is cost effective: it save costs of future services
Prevention helps ageing individuals and their family
Technology makes prevention more sustainable and more effective
Multiple ways to prevention
Using data to identify potential immediate risk
Using data to alert families and individuals: social prevention
Using data to identify negative behaviour changes, alerting all actors
Benefit for all
All aged individuals are being taken care, accordingly to level of risk
Cities can develop new services: helping all and focusing on the needy
The whole society can sustainably support aging in an healthier way
City4Age provides a full range of solutions for prevention.
An approach, a model and procedures to create prevention services
A library of technical components made available to all cities that can build their own customized solution
Interpreting data allows to sustainably monitor large segments of population.
All the aged are involved and monitored. Needy individuals are taken care of specifically, in connection with their families and care-givers.
Estimated growth of dementia
Increase of estimated numbers of
people with dementia worldwide
“Smart cities” can collect data in an unobtrusive way about individual behaviors.
These data can be used for detecting behavior patterns and especially behavior changes.
Data allow to automatically identify segments of population potentially at risk.
City4Age: an excellent consortium with a balanced set of resources
Research and scientific partners, industrial partners, user-representatives partners
6 pilot cities show that prevention of frailty is possible
6 different pilot cities collecting, at the same time, data derived from sensors in the environment and inferred contextual information.
The heterogeneity of the pilot sites is another factor in the validation process that will allow checking the performance of the system in different circumstances and situations.
