eWall for Active Long Living
Start date: Nov 1, 2013,
End date: Oct 31, 2016
eWALL will be an affordable, easy-to-install prefabricated wall that can be mounted on an existing wall and includes all the ICT needed to enable a number of services for the senior citizen to cover major challenges in Active and Healthy Ageing. The project will carry out high-risk and multi-disciplinary research and will have a large-scale demonstrator exercise for validating the wall concept with solid clinical evidence. This will include both technical, user and legal evaluation, to measure the impact on the Quality of Life. The eWALL system will extend the state-of-the-art of Assistive Platforms and will significantly increase the independent living of seniors, taking into account cardiopulmonary conditions, muscle functions, declines in neuromuscular control of movements which cause higher risks of fall, declines in memory, the ability to orientate and coping with complex situations. The project will also perform socio-economic studies to deliver recommendations for the health sector that will result in mid- and long-term benefits for the sustainability of national health systems.
