City4Age can offer some elements to evaluate how the lifestyle of an individual can improve health or determine a certain level of fragility.
What I expect from this project is the creation of a semi-automatic, low-cost and user-friendly system that can be used to identify how monitoring motility and everyday activities can help to assess risk factors.

It is difficult to frame different individuals into a common general model, since each human being is unique. Some behaviours may be similar, but others are specific of an individual. This is, I think, the hardest issue to face in this project, even though we expect to come up with a probabilistic approach that will be helpful to understand which common factors we should focus on to get useful data.
