The VirtuALL project (Innovation, Ageing, Quality of Life) aims to develop innovative responses with the latest scientific and technological knowledge for the elderly population, contributing to ageing in place and combating ageism. We have the goal to create six ecosystems in Municipalities of Center of Portugal (Cantanhede, Figueira da Foz, Mealhada, Mira, Montemor-o-Velho and Penacova) to promote the active and healthy ageing through the social innovation and technologies. In these ecosystems we will provide different solutions for physical and cognitive stimulation and also for socialization, with the inclusion of an augmented reality gaming platform (PEPE - Portable Exergames Platform for The Elderly), a portable balance and pressure platform with visual biofeedback technology and 2D and 3D games (PhysioSensing) and tablets.
