H2020 SC1-PM-15-2017: Personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age: Seeking elderley care providers for technology testing and feedback
Summary:
A UK-based consortium is looking to develop a system that will enable the elderly to live more independently. The system will use and integrate non-intrusive cameras and a robot designed to detect movement, extrapolate information from those movements and provide advice to the users in response to enable them to manage their health. The consortium is looking for domiciliary care providers and their clients to test and provide feedback on the system.
Description:
The increasing elderly populations in most countries presents a seeming contradiction between the individuals wanting to live independently and their needing care due to age-related illnesses. Use of ICT has the potential to provide solutions that enable the elderly to live more independently and still manage their health and mental well-being.

A UK-based agency that specialises in catalysing healthcare innovation by connecting academics, businesses, healthcare authorities and the National Health Service is building a consortium that is developing a non-intrusive chromatic camera and robot system. This system aims to detect the individual´s movements within their home and their interactions with key items such as refrigerators. This data will be linked to a robot that will provide coaching advice to the individual based on these interactions. This would include advice to walk around if the individual has been inactive or to drink more if the system detects that the individual hasn´t used the tap or kettle for a long period. The system will also detect suspicious events, for example apparent falls, and trigger an alarm. This will be further developed to detect changes of motion that indicate a fall is likely to happen and trigger alarm measures aimed at preventing falls and mitigating injury.

The project will bring the different technologies together into one system. The consortium currently consists of Universities and SMEs to develop and integrate the technology. The consortium is looking for care homes, retirement villages and sheltered housing providers across Europe to test and validate the system in different settings and to provide feedback on the practical aspects and usefulness of the system to inform development. Feedback on the system is also required from the elderly individuals involved in the testing process regarding its ease of use and their preferences. This feedback will also be used in further development of the system. It is expected that this feedback into the system will ensure that it is useful to and accepted by end users.

The project proposal will be submitted to Horizon 2020 under the SC1-PM-15-2017: Personalised coaching for well-being and care of people as they age call topic.

Deadlines for Expressions of Interest is 31 October 2016.
Deadline for the call is 31 January 2017.
