Breaking barriers for a sustainable Active and Healthy Ageing through IoT
Better homes for older adults

ACTIVAGE is a European Multi Centric Large Scale Pilot on Smart Living Environments. The main objective is to build the first European IoT ecosystem across 9 Deployment Sites (DS) in seven European countries, reusing and scaling up underlying open and proprietary IoT platforms, technologies and standards, and integrating new interfaces needed to provide interoperability across these heterogeneous platforms, that will enable the deployment and operation at large scale of Active & Healthy Ageing IoT based solutions and services, supporting and extending the independent living of older adults in their living environments, and responding to real needs of caregivers, service providers and public authorities.

Integrated care for older adults under chronic connditiond

The Challenge:

Greece is one of the most “aged” countries in the EU and more than 19.3% of Greece’s population is over the age of 65. Most of them are living alone and deal with chronic health, cognitive or emotional problems. However, they are still active as persons with daily habits and they need to feel independent and not in constant need of others.

The solution:

Health monitoring devices (panic buttons, motion sensors and door sensors) will be installed at assisted person’s home for health monitoring so as to prevent health emergencies, to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle in order to delay deterioration and to fell safe and independent when staying at home.

1. Prevent unnecessary hospitalization due to accidents or health incidents due to luck of vital sign monitoring

2. Maintain therapy adherence

3. Adopt healthy habits that will delay deterioration

4. Ability to be independent and yet safe at home

5. possibility for an integrated care plan that connects both health and care services
