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

Achieved
MultiMed Engineers addressed the commitment through the participation in the H2020 Project City4Age (Elderly-friendly city services for active and healthy ageing , #689731). Within this project, MultMed coordinated the activities of WP2 (Requirements of the risk detection system), it supported the implementation of project’s prototypes to be deployed in six testbed cities (Athens, Birmingham, Lecce, Madrid, Montpellier, Singapore) and it participated in the Innovation management activities related to project’s results. As per March 2016, MultiMed Engineers produced a first draft of the frailty and MCI risk model, to be proposed to testbed sites (documented as public deliverable D2.01). As per August 2017, MultiMed Engineers produced a second, stable version of the frailty and MCI risk model, revised on the basis of feedback collected from testbeds sites (documented as public deliverable D2.06). As per November 2018, MultiMed Engineers produced the final version of the frailty and MCI risk model, including the results of the model validation activity and a report of lessons learned. This version is available in the public deliverable D2.11, available on request. The model has been instantiated in 6 specific application cases, in each of the testbed cities. In June 2019, the Health Technology Assessment for the application of the model in comparison with standard of care and with systematic screening, has been completed using the MAFEIP framework (available on request).
