Activity details

Due to longer life expectancy and declining fertility rates, Europe’s ageing population is growing fast. In order to maximize our wellbeing as we age and to reduce the economic burden on our welfare systems, we need to adopt preventive policies that will promote active and healthy ageing. In this complex context, NESTORE will accompany healthy older adults in adopting preventive habits in different personal dimensions thus developing and promoting customised pathways to wellbeing. As the mythological guide Nestor, NESTORE will act as a wise e-companion that will operate into physical and virtual domains through tangible objects, wearables, environmental sensors, as well as software and apps enabling monitoring and coaching in the main dimensions of human life: (1) Cognitive capabilities, (2) Physiological wellbeing, (3) Nutrition, (4) Physiological status, and (5) Social interaction.
