FrAAgiLe

Platform for detecting and preventing frailty and falls – fragile

 

FrAAgiLe aims to be the most cost-effective solution for detection fraility level and improving it at home, without direct human intervention, only using a tablet and smartwatches.

FrAAgiLe won´t be a falls detector system, but a frailty detector one, intervening earlier to both prevent and detect frailty at home, using no extra sensors in the house and with almost no human intervention. frAAgiLe will provide a new, disruptive approach for combating mental and physical frailty by using video training, serious games, body recognition and tracking by a tablet and a smartwatch.

The platform intends to analyze the status of the elderly person, both physically and mentally, in terms of fragility, and then assign individualized physical and mental exercises to avoid the risk of possible falls, using an accessible and affordable solution that combines videos for exercises and serious games to both train and detect physical or cognitive fragility.

Deep Learning techniques will be applied in order to help the frAAgiLe system learn about the fragility history of each individual end-user and customize the training plan according to his/her evolution.

Objectives:

What frAAgiLe plans to do: analyse the status of the person, physically and mentally, in terms of fraility, and offer physical and mental exercises to avoid the risk of possible falls using an accessible and affordable solution that combines videos for exercises and serious games to both train and detect physical or cognitive fraility. In this project, we involve 3 different end-users organizations to co-create the platform with them.

The system will also focus on being as cheap and less intrusive as possible, using only tablets and wearables.

The frAAgiLe project has a duration of 24 month from Jul-2019 to June-2021. The total project cost is 2.246.554 Euro. The EC contribution is 1.451.616 Euro. This project is funded by the European Union’s AAL Programme.

SingularLogic Romania has received funding from the Executive Unit for Financing Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation (UEFISCDI).
