The Project

In order to achieve OLDES goals, new technological concepts will be integrated and adapted. OLDES will provide user entertainment services, through easy-to-access thematic channels and special discussion groups supported by animators, as well as health care services based on established Internet and tele-care communication standards.

The OLDES system will include wireless environment and medical sensors linked to health care providers.

The system will be tested at two different locations: In Italy (in Bologna) with the involvement of a group of 100 elderly people (including 10 senior citizens suffering from heart disease) and in the Czech Republic (in Prague) with the involvement of a group of 10 diabetic patients.
