The associated project presented is part of a main programme named ModulEn, a pilot project for the establishment of a predictive model as possible modulator of aging in health. This project aims to establish a predictive model of risk of frailty in older people aged 65-80 years from Portugal (Coimbra) and Spain (Coruña, Huelva and León), using data from ACM KRONOWISE® 2.0 sensors ("wristwatch"). These sensors allows proactive and continuous monitoring of circadian cycles, patterns of physical activity and eating, and brightness levels to which participants are exposed, data that can predict the evolution of older people frailty. The results of this project will allow the construction and validation of instruments that will improve older people literacy, autonomy and well-being and that will support the conventional techniques existing in the research.
