Partner Imaginary presented its solution Rehability together with the overall concept of the vCare project at the European NeuroConvention in June 2018 in London. The concept of Virtual Coaches has been presented as a way to support a personalised rehabilitation complying with age-related conditions for patients after an acute episode or with a chronic disease.
ACTIVAGE project had an exceptional presence in the IoT Week Conference 2018, the most important European event addressing the latest trends in the IoT domain, held in Bilbao, Spain from 4th until 7th of June 2018. The ACTIVAGE Technical Session in IoT Week Conference 2018 was supported by vCare and CAPTAIN.
“ACTIVAGE Large Scale Pilot project” is one of the key sectors in the IoT for the “Active&Healthy Ageing” (AHA-IoT) domain, producing evidence of the value of IoT on fostering the deployment of Active and Healthy Ageing solutions in Europe, through the integration of advanced IoT technologies across the value chain, demonstrating multiple AHA-IoT applications at large scale in a usage context, in real operational conditions.
In the framework of the 2018 IoT Week, ACTIVAGE project was presented in the Exhibition zone of the Conference. Also, a collaborative event between PM-15 projects -with the remarkable contribution of vCare Project – and ACTIVEAGE was held, including three technical sessions, organized by key invited experts from social and health care industry and user’s organisations to debate on two burning topics of AHA-IoT market: Smart Living Environments and Active and Healthy Ageing IoT solutions and technologies.
Eight PM-15 projects, vCare, CAPTAIN, EMPATHIC, NESTORE, WellCo, COUCH, SAAM and Holobalance, remotely joined the session. Key medical technology, consumer, electronics and communication leaders discussed on the potential of AHA-IoT, and how AIOTI (co-organizer of the session) and ACTIVAGE together can take the lead to boost growth of the AHA-IoT market, attracting the collaboration of the many European organisations that deals with IoT technology and with the ageing population issues in Europe.
It is noted that as an institution, the IoT Week Conference gathers the community of stakeholders engaged in developing new IoT technologies and solutions. A great number of SMEs working on digital health and AHA, AAL and Horizon 2020 (2017) PM-15 projects, H2020 ICT-IoT projects with use-cases in health and smart living environments for ageing well, AIOTI-WG5 members, Smart Cities rulers and other entities, interested in IoT advances in health and social care joined this year’s conference.
In conjunction with the next physical overall project meeting, our host partner OSAKIDETZA, organizes a partern event in Bilbao on June 5, 2018. Apart from the consortium members the main audience are local clinicians and health system representatives. The aim is to diffuse the idea behind our project, present solutions for rehabilitation at home in general and to show some of the already existing technical solutions together with the concepts behind them that could help to do so.
The website of the EU-funded vCare project has now been launched to inform the public about the aim and the progress of the project. Stay tuned!
