See Far and Holobalance cross-promotion




Balance training has been shown to be effective in reducing risks of falling, which is a major concern for older adults. HOLOBALANCE is an intervention based on a novel technology platform for providing VRT unsupervised, at home which means that motivating citizens to be compliant and promoting empowerment are the cornerstones for its wide adoption. 
Holobalance participated in the Sister Projects Workshop on Friday 22nd January. This was a meeting where several European H2020 projects in the Health & Technology sector could share their results and discuss the methodological and ethical aspects of a Horizon project.
We had a great impact on this workshop.  While other projects were in earlier stages, Holobalance, which is in a more advanced stage, helped them understand what the pilot study entails.

sustage project

sustAGE aims to develop a person-centered smart solution capitalizing on a number of state-of-the-art technologies in IoT, machine learning, recommender systems, temporal reasoning and data analytics to support the older workforce in two critical industry domains, manufacturing and transportation and logistics. The system will exploit unobtrusive low-cost devices such as smartphones, smartwatches, environmental sensors and cameras in designated areas in the workplace, to monitor user states, actions and interactions with the physical environment. Considering information-rich user micro-moments sustAGE builds a personalized recommendation framework to support older adults in carrying out their work tasks, improve their cognitive abilities and increase productivity, health and wellbeing both at work and outside though a holistic approach. The pilots and system validation will take place at the CRF World Class Manufacturing (WCM) Research and Innovation Center in Melfi (Italy) involving assembly line workers and at the commercial terminal of the Heraklion Port Authority (Greece) with port workers supporting the cargo operations.
