• Better Understand Frailty & Develop Measures to Define it

    The first two Medical Objectives (MOs) of the project are to better understand frailty and its relation to co-morbidities (MO1) and develop quantitative and qualitative measures to define frailty (MO2).

  • FrailSafe featured in Horizon magazine

    We are glad that the Horizon magazine, the European Union’s Research and Innovation Magazine, has published the article "Frailty indicators could help prevent problems with ageing", which features our work on the FrailSafe project.

  • FrailSafe in the "Open Doors" event organized by ONPA

    The French partners of FrailSafe are working very hard to raise awareness about the project. One of the occasions was an “Open Doors” event organized by ONPA (Office Nancéien des Personnes Âgées), a local French association for older people, on 30 June and the 1 July 2016. Given the target group of the ONPA, it goes without saying that FrailSafe French partners, represented by a group of investigators from INSERM and the Geriatric Department of Nancy’s University Hospital, are closely working with the association.

  • FrailSafe Smartvest

    FrailSafe partner Smartex has completed the development and production of the "Wearable WBAN - Wireless Body Area Network - System" (WWBS) designed to measure individuals’ medical parameters. The system is composed of a sensorised garment, an electronic device and a software tool for visualisation of streaming of data or downloading the recorded data from the electronic device to a PC (and then uploaded to a cloud service).

  • FrailSafe's Electronic Case Report Form (eCRF)

    The main objectives of FrailSafe is to better understand frailty and be able to recognize common patterns through data collection that would explain when a person tips from the non-frail to the frail category.

  • FrailSafe's Virtual Patient Model (VPM)

    One of FrailSafe objectives is to generate reliable advanced intervention services and determine the risk of triggering events that would make a person tip from the pre-frail category to the frail one.

  • Launch of FrailSafe: A new EU project to delay frailty among older persons by bridging health data and new technologies

    The FrailSafe project was launched on 1st January 2016 and includes partners from Greece, Spain, Italy, Belgium, France and Cyprus. The aim is ambitious: delaying frailty by developing a set of measures and tools, together with recommendations to reduce its onset. To achieve these objectives, FrailSafe will combine state of the art information technologies and data mining techniques with high-level expertise in the field of health and ageing. The project is funded by the European Research programme Horizon 2020 and will last three years.

  • Serious games for frailty detection

    To successfully support the FrailSafe study, a series of serious games will be designed. The first FrailSafe game, the Virtual Supermarket game, was released last December and is used to detect Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) among our older volunteers.

  • Virtual Supermarket game

    Games with a purpose are invaluable tools to encourage the user participation in health monitoring applications. The usage of games for monitoring the physical and cognitive status of older persons is a core concept of the FrailSafe project.

  • Welcome to the 1st issue of the FrailSafe biannual newsletter!

    Many health specialists often compare frailty to a popular game called Jenga. The aim is to pull out one block at a time from the tower until the structure is too fragile to remain standing. As we grow older, our body does not recover as quickly as before and each infection, fall or hospital admission can be represented by one missing block on the Jenga tower, weakening the whole structure until it eventually collapses. As each and every one of us age differently, with different genes and lifestyles, detecting the point of no return becomes extremely difficult.

  • Welcome to the 2nd issue of the FrailSafe biannual newsletter!

    The FrailSafe project has been going on for almost a year now.

  • Welcome to the 3rd issue of the FrailSafe biannual newsletter!

    Since the last newsletter, the Consortium partners have worked to set up a first version of the FrailSafe system and have developed a couple of games to support the FrailSafe study for the volunteers to play. The latest achievements are detailed in the present newsletter.
