Working in partnership with Public Health and healthcare professionals, Birmingham aims to support older people to stay independent, active and engaged in managing their health and wellbeing; offering just-in-time interventions, encouraging an increase in outdoor and social activities thus stimulating physical and mental exercise.
Two citizen groups aged 65+ from two distinct areas with different demographics capture data on their individual behaviours through the use of sensing / wearable technologies, detecting changes in behaviour and supported by outdoor beacons, positioned in their local communities.
