Connected Health System for Frailty Prevention

Room L5, 05/12/2018 (10:00-10:45)

Health specialists often compare frailty to a game called Jenga, which in its original version consists of a wooden blocks tower. The aim is to pull out one block at a time from the tower until the structure is too fragile to remain standing. As we grow older, our body does not recover as quickly as before. Each infection, fall or hospital admission can be represented by one missing block of the tower. FrailSafe can support older peoples’ body to remain stable longer, delaying the collapsing of the tower.

Policy makers are working to enable older citizens to remain active and healthy as long as possible. However, frailty among older people is quite spread and can lead to increased vulnerability. Being able to detect this transition becomes crucial if we want them to remain active and healthy.

The networking session will be the opportunity to present an innovative ICT solution that can be a game changer in society for frailty prevention. The FrailSafe IT Platform is developed to better understand frailty and thus better prevent the syndrome among older people. It enables them to use digital tools, like smart wearables and serious games to monitor their health, more specifically, their frailty levels. They can then adopt a preventive approach via personalized interventions and delay the onset of frailty. Participants will be invited to discuss the benefits of the solution, exchange with partners and learn more about the developed apps, integrated system and technical novelties

Dear Mrs. Tram,

unfortunately they are so many interesting and useful networking sessions that I won't be able to attend all of them because of scheduling conflicts with others. Will there be a video recording of your session available?

Kind regards,

Rado
