ICT4Life project is aimed at developing solutions for individuals with early or intermediate stages of cognitive impairment and at contributing to extend their autonomy. People affected by dementia and, more in particular, by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s constitute the main group of users on which ICT4Life focuses its analysis.
These patients face difficulties in managing their everyday life, and need continuous care to ensure safety. Both them and their family members can get help in these everyday tasks by using user-friendly technology solutions, which can also provide support for their doctors and care professionals.
ICT4Life ambition for patients is to help them to extend the time they remain at their own homes. ICT4Life guarantees the privacy of the patients, who exert their right to access their personal healthcare data and to record their own checks. They can decide who can see their data, and grant and revoke permissions when desired. ICT4Life monitors the health status of the patients to better understand the evolution of the disease, reminding patients to take actions in order to promote the maintenance of their general conditions or sending alarms to their preferred caregivers.
