for an active and serene aging

Smart Aging is a project co-financed by the MIUR in the context of the competition notice “Smart Cities and Communities and Social Innovation” DD591, published on 5/07/2012.

This project aims to develop new systems which generate and process information in order to improve elderly people’s health, provide assistance to them and grant them more autonomy. To achieve these results, Smart Aging aims to develop and test a personal data collection (PHR) system interconnected with sensors and equipped with intelligent data-elaboration systems and systems to generate useful outputs to cure chronic pathologies, which often afflict elderly people, and at the same time to promote and drive people to adopt healthy and health-compatible life styles.

This project means to exploit new technologies and systems to revolution the way we handle information concerning elderly people’s well-being, prevention and cure for pathological conditions: it aims both to monitor those conditions and to implement intelligent ways so as to concretely actuate assistance planning, autonomy support, well-being improvement and cure efficacy.

Taking into account the Aging Society phenomenon, this project aims to generate an environment in which to acquire, store and process personal data and clinical information. The system will be integrated with the Electronic Health File, in accordance with the indications of Ministry of Health. The purpose of the project will be to directly assist citizens and make the clinical practice more efficient on the basis of their personal data.

Data acquisition systems will be developed in the following areas:

  1. Home Area Network
  2. Body Area Network
  3. Gym Area Network
  4. Bicycle Area Network
  5. Smart City Area Network

Elaborating personal data will allow us to summarize and corredate citizens’ data with clinical data, thus creating a summary, available for evaluation by medical operators, which will help making pharmacological treatments more efficient and will generate alerts and assistance systems, which will in turn prolong citizens’ well-being and independency.
