The aim of the PAMAP project is to develop an ICT-based system for accurately monitoring the physical activity of elderly, in a clinical environment, as well as, in daily life. By putting in evidence possible deficits, health professionals are provided with objective information to enable well-founded diagnosis, better supervision of therapies, and better success measures. At the same time, by providing an entertaining and motivating user interface, the elderly should be encouraged to improve their level of physical activity.
Expected results and impact
The expected result of the PAMAP project is a modular ICT solution, composed of several self-contained system components: sensory equipment, algorithms and software for physical activity analysis, visualisation, and patient feedback, and an Electronic Health Record application with web and i-TV interfaces.
The purpose of this system is to support physical activity monitoring for private (prevention) and professional (secondary prevention and rehabilitation) purposes.
