20 people over 80 years old at risk of frailty and/or Mild Cognitive Impairment are involved in Madrid’s pilot: they are people with an “active” life, usually moving around the city by public transports (mainly buses). Their activity and usual behavior are detected through sensors.
The initial intervention consists of a questionnaire to assess, for example, if the person is becoming frailer and at risk of social isolation. This questionnaire is sent to the users’ smartphone and if the person does not respond to the questionnaire, she is contacted.
If significant changes of behaviors or signs of functional decline are detected, an adequate intervention is deployed. For example, in case of frailty risk, the user will receive in his/her smartphone exercises recommendations.
