AGA@4LIFE (CENTRO-01-0145-FEDER-023369)

"Abordagem Geriátrica Ampla" na promoção de um envelhecimento ativo e saudável"

Aging is a major societal challenge today. To match this cross-cutting issue to the various sectors of society, a project was designed aimed at promoting an active and healthy aging through the implementation of an intervention program based on the comprehensive geriatric assessment model (in Portuguese, Abordagem Geriátrica Ampla - AGA), also incorporating regional endogenous resources and the Health Sciences academia. The proposed AGA model is based on an individual, holistic and multidisciplinary assessment protocol, from which intervention strategies will be implemented, adjusted to each person?s needs, and aimed at preventing frailty and functional, cognitive and social decline of the elderly. Intervention actions will be focused on personalized exercise programs, nutritional education, cognitive stimulation, comorbidities monitoring, therapeutic counseling and global promotion of wellbeing.

 

AQUATROPOLIS (POCI-01-0247-FEDER-017888)

“Intelligent management system for sustainable aquacultures “

The main objective is to develop a disruptive solution for an intelligent, optimized and automated management of aquaculture operations, in order to promote the sustainable development of the aquaculture industry in the countries of the Atlantic region. Aquatropolis is in line with the principles advocated by the European strategy for Blue Growth, with the action plan for its implementation in the Atlantic Region, as well as with the Portuguese vision stated in the document "ENM". The project is also lined up with the objectives of "European Digital Agenda", supporting the principles of the Smart Cities on the mission to colonize in an efficient and sustainable way the 71% of the planet occupied by the ocean. More specifically, "Aquatropolis" will take advantage of a series of tools already available, namely: the Internet of Things (IoT), the "fog" computational systems available on the "cloud" (SaaS), the principles promoted by the "Sharing Economy Model" and technological innovation applied to precision monitoring instruments/sensors.

EXOBIKE (CENTRO-01-0145-FEDER-24013)

"Equipamento biomecânico para terapia restauradora e apoio à reabilitação"

O projeto propõe o desenvolvimento de uma bicicleta que assume a função de exosqueleto, uma ExoBike, para realizar e recuperação de indivíduos que sofreram traumatismos ósseos, bem como na recuperação, treino e diagnóstico precoce de pacientes com doenças neuro degenerativas. A ExoBike é uma estrutura com o formato semelhante ao de uma bicicleta fixa que possui um conjunto de sensores e atuadores que permitem implementar um sistema ativo/passivo que reage de forma dinâmica às necessidades da patologia em estudo. A ExoBike permite ao profissionais médicos colocar em prática terapias em que o esforço solicitado ao paciente é regulável entre zero e um determinado máximo. Os movimentos dos pacientes são monitorizados utilizando um conjunto de sensores sem fios, implementando uma rede pessoal, bem como uma solução de realidade virtual que permite colocar os utilizadores perante situações fortemente correlacionadas com a realidade. O sistema possui a capacidade de recolher, armazenar e tratar dados médicos de pacientes que podem posteriormente ser analisados por profissionais médicos qualificados. Os algoritmos de fusão sensorial são utilizados neste contexto para realizar interfaces gráficos que permitem aos profissionais médicos uma avaliação rápida e fiável.

This solution will do remote and local monitoring of biometric parameters of the elderly, as well as environmental parameters of their homes. The biometric variables include heart rate and temperature measurements collected automatically, by means of a bracelet, throughout the day. Blood pressure and blood glucose values will be measured by the senior’s own initiative. The environmental parameters include carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide measurements. A television channel with easy interaction allows the elderly to access biometric data, and automatically receive medical warnings and recommendations (based on biometric protocol and user profile). All data will also be available through Internet browser. In alarm situations, an automatic operational procedure will be triggered establishing communication to predefined entities.
