“Less falls better lives”
“Which innovation to serve the older generation towards an active and healthy ageing (and to prevent falls)?”
FARSEEING partners will be presenting on work from the FARSEEING project at this public workshop in Florence on the 3rd December 2013.

White paper of project results: A White paper on project outcomes so far will soon be available on the website and you will be sent an email letting you know when you can access this.
Taxonomy of technologies: Over the winter a taxonomy of technologies will become available as an interactive online tool on the website. We welcome your comments and hope you will find it useful! The taxonomy aims to ” classify and describe
studies which use Information Communication Technology (ICT) devices to detect falls, monitor or promote movement-related function and physical activity in fall prevention”.
The taxonomy is designed for two purposes:
 To characterise and classify technology-enabled interventions– such as those published in the literature. It is hoped that this will achieve easier comparison of technologies.
 To encourage authors of new interventions to report the intervention in such a way that it can be replicated and understood by others.
