Activity details

MultiMed Engineers, currently partner of the H2020 Project City4Age (Elderly-friendly city services for active and healthy ageing , #689731), is committed to create a risk detection and subsequent risk counteracting intervention model related to MCI, frailty and, more in general, functional decline in aging populations living in smart cities. The assumption underlying this commitment is that smart cities collect a significant wealth of data that can be used to measure appropriate indicators, based on current geriatrics knowledge, to detect signs of health decline earlier than allowed by current practices. A special challenge of this endeavour is to unobtrusively measure behaviour and behaviour changes (such as those addressed for instance by IADLs scales) to derive risk indicators. On the other side, the smart city can – through appropriate coordination of information and services –constitute the most effective environment to enact interventions aimed at counteracting those risks.

Current Status

Ongoing
MultiMed Engineers is addressing the commitment through the participation in the H2020 Project City4Age (Elderly-friendly city services for active and healthy ageing , #689731). Within this project, MultMed is coordinating the activities of WP2 (Requirements of the risk detection system), it will support the implementation of project’s prototypes, to be deployed in six testbed cities (Athens, Birmingham, Lecce, Madrid, Montpellier, Singapore)and it will participate in the Innovation management activities related to project’s results.
