Pilots location and description

 


Pilot in Pergine (Italy)

Lead partner: APSS, leader: Ms Sara Condini

Location: Hospital Villa Rosa in Pergine, Italy Type: Instrumented apartments

Villa Rosa is a state of the art facility managed by APSS, whose paradigm is the reproduction of daily life in instrumented apartment to assess needs and solution for each single patient. The goal of the pilot in is to monitor patients to help them identify the right level of technology to be provided to the patient to bring home. Patients spend one week in the apartment to experiment aid technologies for proving their suitability and utility. The UNCAP BOX will be tested to assess the appropriateness in correspondence of specific patient. Patient and environment will be monitored to measure the level of use of different technologies, the fatigue and stress that their use cause to the patient, the patient acceptability and the cost/utility ratio.

Tarzo

 

Pilot in Tarzo (Italy)

Lead partner: SOCIALIT, leader: Dott. Giovanni Sallemi

Location: Villa Bianca, Tarzo (TV) -Italy Type: Nursing home

The UNCAP BOX and App will be used in the common spaces inside the area of the nursing home, in order to monitor the mobility of the patients through use of smart sensors, with data being automatically converted into the results of InterRAI monitoring tests. The patients will experiment automatic guidance within the facility. Family members of some patients will be involved; the already present “family committee” will have be engaged to suggest the best solutions for the integration of the UNCAP technology inside the nursing home. The family committee is already used to monitor their parents’ Individual Plan of Care from home using internet. Also Regione Veneto has provided its adhesion to monitor the project in this case, in order to transfer the results to the home care scenario.

Hohenkirchen

Pilot at Höhenkirchen-S. (Germany)

Lead partner: FUTURE, leader: Christl Lauterbach

Location: Wohnen am Schlossanger, Höhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn Type: Nursery home apartments

A large-area SensFloor system will be installed in 10 patient rooms including the bathroom. SensFloor will provide signals when someone is going out of bed and moving around in the room or bathroom. UNCAP will be also used to turn on orientation lights to avoid stumbling in the dark. Events will be notified by UNCAP to nurses when the system identifies that the patient needs help. If a patient falls and lays on the floor a fall alarm will be triggered. Another 10 rooms will be equipped with a SensFloor mat before each bed. UNCAP will turn on orientation light and send alarm to the nurse to indicate that the patient is leaving the bed and possibly in need of help. The efficiency of both systems will be compared rooms without such equipment.

Pilot at Athens (Greece)

Lead partner: BIO, leader: Mr. George Spyroglou

Location: Bioclinic Athens, Greece Type: Patients’ residences

The pilot is also supported by Bioclinic Athens, is a large private hospital unit in Athens premises. The participants of the pilot typically suffer from COPD and/or diabetes; they are aged 65+ years old and with limited mobility due to amputations- will be provided with blood glucose and/or blood oxygen sensors, a smartwatch and a tablet. For each user, a specialized doctor will define a timeline of measurements that need to be taken daily and the respective thresholds. The medical team will be alarmed by UNCAP whenever a threshold violation is detected and will also receive an aggregated report to evaluate the patient’s condition. Falls will be automatically detected via a smartwatch.

 thessaloniki

Pilot in Thessaloniki (Greece)

Lead partner: AUTH, leader: Dr. Panagiotis Bamidis

Location: AUTH, Thessaloniki, Greece Type: Elderly care center

The AUTH team has some 15 workstations available for trial sites and a central DB with senior data and pilots. Participants in the pilot will be healthy (retired) people aged 65+ at risk of cognitive decline, people with Mild Cognitive impairment or mild dementia. They will be randomised and put into (parameter-based) matched groups of “patients” and “control”. Different exergaming interventions will be designed and trialled out for a specific period of time for various group modifications; the aim will be to investigate if exergames have an effect on the quality of life and their overall cognition independently of the gaming experience. The long-term goal will be to make this dataset a “reference dataset” for the whole region.

N. of elderly users involved (per year): 200 N. of caregivers involved: 5


Pilot in Maribor (Slovenia)

Lead partner: VOG leader: Dr. Emilija Stojmenova

Location: Elderly Home Danice Vogrinec Maribor Type: Elderly care center & private homes

Elderly Home Danice Vogrinec Maribor is the largest gerontology public facility in well as home care services for elderly people living in their private homes in the area. The pilot will introduce a smart self-monitoring solution that will help ease and motivating a healthy and safe lifestyle of elderly people. Through a simple tablet application, the UNCAP solution will locate elderly users and detect sudden falls, and motivate them to regularly measure biodata using easy-to-use smart sensors (e.g., glucometer, smart scale), take medication and attend scheduled video workouts. In case of alarming data, a concerning fall or unusual location, the application will allow for instant help by alerting designated carers. The elderly user will be able to view data and share them with their care specialist on a consent basis, which will provide means to extended care treatments. Throughout pilot trial, usefulness, adoption and usability of the solution and the sensing devices will be closely monitored.
