The Trainutri Consortium provides IT based end-user services, combining intelligent wireless sensor network technologies, data processing, Web 2.0 and social network models and a web portal providing user feedback on goals achieved and supporting interaction with peers. End-users can communicate using the web portal, their smart phone or both.
Through analysis of acceleration metre activity, an estimation of walking activity and used calories, per day, will be provided. An extension with activity recognition technology and a global positioning module makes it possible to advice users to integrate exercise goals and nutritional goals in their daily life
The older adults target group is focussed on those who choose to carry out a healthy lifestyle :
- They will be able to build a healthy personal environment configuring their activities according to their condition and preferences
- They will count on direct professional support to make this healthy personal environment consistent
The TRAINUTRI AAL project aims to raise consciousness about self wellness, enabling the exchange of knowledge related to physical and nutritional healthy habits. The project will help people (seniors between 50 and 65 years from both sex) to develop healthy habits (keeping them physically active and actively involved in the maintenance of their health) and will enable people to share and exchange healthy habits related activities, experiences and knowledge allowing them to keep and enrich their social relationships while they age in their preferred environments.
Expected results and impact:
The improvement of the quality of life of the elderly people is the main objective of this project, as the basis of the project is to help senior people to make personalised exercise
There are also indirect contributions, like the ones derived from the social inclusion, and interaction between people.
Keeping strong and reliable social bonds is essential for maintaining a good quality of life. The elderly will be empowered and remain active in the provision of their health and general wellbeing.
