Smart Big Data Platform to Offer Evidence-based Personalised Support for Healthy and Independent Living at Home

Descrizione del progetto

Sensori per fornire assistenza sanitaria personalizzata agli anziani

L’invecchiamento è una sfida centrale per le società dell’UE poiché il numero di anziani è in aumento. L’invecchiamento ha impatti sociali e finanziari significativi a causa della maggiore incidenza di disturbi alla salute quali perdita dell’udito, malattie cardiovascolari, disturbi mentali e dell’equilibrio. La tendenza nella cura degli anziani è quella di cercare soluzioni per la prevenzione e il trattamento efficaci dei disturbi legati all’età. Il progetto SMART BEAR, finanziato dall’UE, svilupperà una piattaforma basata su una varietà di sensori e strumenti mobili che raccoglieranno in modo permanente dati sulla loro vita quotidiana e li analizzeranno per fornire interventi personalizzati. La soluzione SMART BEAR sarà testata in progetti pilota su larga scala che coinvolgono 5 000 anziani che vivono a casa in Francia, Grecia, Italia, Romania e Spagna.

Obiettivo

It is a fact that the European population growth is slowing down, while the population ageing accelerates. Rapid increases in the elderly population are predicted for the coming decades due to the ageing of post-war baby births. Within Europe’s ageing population, Hearing Loss, Cardio Vascular Diseases, Cognitive Impairments, Mental Health Issues and Balance Disorders, as well as Frailty, are prevalent conditions, with tremendous social and financial impact. Preventing, slowing the development of or dealing effectively with the effects of the above impairments can have a significant impact on the quality of life and lead to significant savings in the cost of healthcare services. Digital tools hold the promise for many health benefits that can enhance the independent living and well-being of the elderly.
Motivated by the above, the aim of the SMART BEAR platform is to integrate heterogeneous sensors, assistive medical and mobile devices to enable the continuous data collection from the everyday life of the elderly, which will be analysed to obtain the evidence needed in order to offer personalised interventions promoting their healthy and independent living. The platform can also be connected to hospitals and other health care service systems to obtain data of the end-users (e.g. medical history) to be considered in making decisions for interventions. SMART BEAR will leverage big data analytics and learning capabilities, allowing for large scale analysis of the above mentioned collected data, to generate the evidence required for making decisions about personalised interventions. Privacy-preserving and secure by design data handling capabilities, covering data at rest, in processing, and in transit, will cover comprehensively all the components and connections utilized by the SMART BEAR platform. The SMART BEAR solution will be validated through five large-scale pilots involving 5.100 elderly living at home in Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Romania.
