Advanced technologies for helping the elderly

Frailty of the ageing population: a problem for Europe

City4Age monitors behaviour and foster health

Collecting data

Data are collected automatically in an unobtrusive way

Effective intervention

Self-improvement, social prevention, active help

Connecting people

Aged individuals, their families, care givers and medical staff: constantly connected

Several ways for prevention

Collecting data

Smart Cities generate rapidly increasing volumes of data

Other data can be collected via unobtrusive sensors

Behaviour changes can be monitored automatically interpreting data

Why prevention

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

“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.
