Recent technologies advances open plenty of possibilities to improve the quality of life of people, especially of elderly and those with emotional, physical and cognitive impairments. In this context the project aims to create an adaptive and integrated system, which will provide:
- continuous monitoring of elderly persons’ healthcare parameters and their environment with the least possible intrusive equipment;
- sense of presence of their family, friends, caregivers and health care personnel.
The lack of ICT platforms based on open standards is regarded as one of the most significant market barriers to the creation of new care & assistance paradigms with global interconnection and interworking. UNCAP delivers an interoperable platform based on open industrial standards that leverages on existing technologies for biosensing, indoor/outdoor localization and home-automation.
IRIS Smart Home is a demonstration apartment and clinical research facility (ambient assisted living lab) fitted with equipment and technical aids, from the simple to the most advanced, assisting the elderly and persons with various disabilities. Among them, Dom IRIS features a health telemonitoring system.
Goal of the project is to reduce costs connected to monitoring and treating diabetes patients.
