Apport des technologies au suivi des personnes âgées fragiles

Abstract : Population aging is today a major societal and economic challenge. The approach generally taken to meet this challenge is to promote independent living at home. However, besides the onset of diseases associated with old age, the elderly are more prone to stress created by the situations of everyday life: they become frail and gradually lose their functional potential, sliding progressively into dependence. The objective of encouraging and supporting independent living thus entails identifying persons at risk of frailty, and monitoring this frailty to limit its negative effects. This is made possible by user-friendly technology, easy to implement that takes into account the major indicators of physical frailty.
