Empowering communities to care by combining smart technology and personal help to maintain mobility

CiM innovates the way we think about care of the elderly by involving all members of a care network and additionally empowering volunteers to care with the use of advanced ICT: we involve formal and informal carers as well as the elderly persons and we give incentives to each group – to make a contribution towards better quality of life for all parties involved. This includes a report system for informal carers, better synchronization between formal and informal carers; and training as well as motivational incentives for elderly people suffering from diseases of the circulatory or the musculoskeletal system and their informal carers. To these people, we offer services and applications to motivate them to do more exercise and thus, improve their general health.
