The White Paper on the interim results of the FARSEEING project has now been released.
The white paper presents a series of issues which the FARSEEING project aims to tackle and then provides the recommended solutions for these issues, if available, or the work that has been done so far by the project to respond to each issue.
The paper is available for download here: FARSEEING Interim Project Results.
The key issues are:
· Having the correct infrastructure to collect data on real-life falls and therefore establishing what real-life falls look like.
· Establishing the longitudinal risk factors for falls.
· Establishing effective telemedicine models to enable effective intervention.
· Establishing how we encourage older adults to take-up and maintain use of technologies.
· Establishing how we can we use technologies to challenge older adults and prevent falls.
The FARSEEING project is currently able to provide recommendations relating to data collection and data storage on real-life falls, as well as providing information on the infrastructure and design of interventions using technologies to predict, monitor and prevent falls and promote healthy active ageing.
