Healthy independent living is a major challenge for the ageing European population. Promotion of stimulating physical activity and prevention of falls are two key factors. Smart ICT offers unique proactive opportunities to support older people in their own homes that become the place of choice for efficient and effective interventions. Falls in older persons are indeed common, often leading to institutionalisation and loss of independence. FARSEEING aims to promote better prediction, prevention and support of older persons, by long-term analysis of behavioural and physiological data collected using smartphones, wearable and environmental sensors. The inclusion of a longstanding cohort study (InChianti) ensures a representative population sample, which is urgently needed to translate technological advance into real world service provision. Telemedicine service models using open technological platforms, independent of sensor systems, are being developed for detection of falls and exchange of information between the older person, family, caregivers and health-care personnel. Novel exercise regimens are under design that increase adaptability and stimulate motor learning, and cognitive and emotional well being. During this talk the scenarios for home-based monitoring, training, and fall detection and management will be presented.
