One of the key factors influencing people’s ability to lead an active and independent life is remaining healthy. This goal becomes ever more difficult to achieve as people age. Yet, undertaking adequate measures to prevent diseases, reacting to inevitable development of frailty and eventually making sure the developed chronic condition does not exclude one from active participation in the society is especially important for older adults. Therefore, PELOSHA aims to employ advances in mobile- and tele-health, artificial intelligence and internet of things to create a comprehensive ICT-based solution that makes the challenge of managing one’s own health easier. The existing technologies allowing to deal with individual aspects of this challenge will get integrated into a smart application facilitating a personalised approach to healthy living for older adults. The PELOSHA solution will be co‑designed and tested with participation of diverse end user groups from 3 European countries.
PELOSHA aims to create an integrated solution that can support older adults in managing their health as they age. The system will provide a personalisable environment in which all key aspects of older adult’s health can be addressed with specialised AAL services and applications. The package will allow to smartly select services adequate to the current needs of the end user, ranging from assisting them in preventing diseases, detecting symptoms of increased risk of health deterioration up to the management of life with chronic diseases.
Expected results and impact
The PELOSHA project aims to create a solution that allows to easily deliver personalised environments for seamless management of own health by diverse groups of older adults. These may include active people before retirement, retired active persons or people living in assisted housing. Since these groups differ in particular health-related needs due to their differing ages and lifestyles, the project shall select a specific use case for its starting market scenario. This scenario shall be verified in a pilot launch of the system, so that the solution can be provided as a product within the months following the end of the project.
