Frailsafe Description

FrailSafe is an EU funded project under Horizon 2020. FrailSafe aims to develop a novel self-management system for preventing frailty, based on a patient-specific approach that is part of a comprehensive plan for managing and supporting older people, as well as exploring different causes of frailty manifestation. The system will focus on monitoring older people’ everyday life in order to capture manifestations related to frailty, and through dynamically synthesized augmented reality (AR) games combined with data mining techniques, it builds a self-adaptive personalized virtual patient model, aiming to unobtrusively help older people improve and/or prevent being frail. In detail, a wearable wireless body area network formed by a number of heterogeneous sensors, designed to continuously monitor a cluster of physiological parameters while sitting, standing or performing synthesized AR games adapted to the motor/cognitive capabilities of the individual, will transmit the measurements to a personal guidance system that will give appropriate feedback to the user on how to manage and reduce the risk for frailty.The project is expected to demonstrate significant impact in various domains ranging from older people themselves, healthcare professionals, associations and the society as a whole.
