TURNTABLE is a white label, extendable ICT platform addressed to 65+ years old users, supporting healthy and active ageing. The idea merges two ways of how to approach active aging: a bottom up approach from concrete, existing building blocks (a gardening and a nutrition application) that can be integrated in a single digital solution; and a top down long-term vision of a platform covering up to 60% of the elderly’s daily needs (which will also provide additional services and products). For this reason, the TURNTABLE solution will integrate various ICT tools into one intuitive, personalized, extensible AAL platform, with the aim to support vitality and ability of the elderly starting with the prevention of social isolation, physical inactivity and unhealthy eating behaviours. The reach of European dimensions of the platform, co-creation and testing sessions will be held in 4 EU states. The solution will be introduced in 200 actual users’ real lives for a period of 12 months.
As people age, many become more sedentary and less active. Difficulties arising from these changes, both physical and cognitive, interfere with maintenance of a good nutritional status as well as everyday functioning and participation in social activities. TURNTABLE will help motivate older adults to adopt healthy nutritional habits through personalized dietary recommendations and guidelines and assist them in maintaining an active lifestyle involving recreational social agriculture/ gardening activities, reducing feelings of isolation, and acquiring new skills and enjoying outdoor spaces.
Expected results and impact
TURNTABLE is an extendable ICT platform integrating solutions for the most pressing daily needs of old people. It will ensure the usability of solutions within the platform offering a ‘one-stop shop’ with targeted ICT solutions for older users. TURNTABLE is extendable, meaning other components can be added from third party providers in the future. The business model is designed to ensure it for free to end-users, in order to promote widespread adoption. Starting with gardening and nutrition services, TURNTABLE will be further extended with services for safer homes, and healthcare and social needs.
