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.
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.

Within the FrailSafe project, researchers from the University of Patras have developed a frailty detection model that takes texts of older people into account.
Our French partner, INSERM, represented FrailSafe at a Congress on frailty among older people in Paris on 5 and 6 April 2018.
The FrailSafe project developed an integrated solution consisting of wearable devices, mobile phones, tablets, a cloud-based website and a mobile app, all combined together through a sophisticated data-analyzing platform.
Our partners submitted a paper at the IEEE International Conference on E-health Networking, Application & Services that took place on 17-20 September 2018 in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
The symptoms of frailty can be detected not only through the clinical measurements of physical or cognitive properties of an older person, but also through behavioral parameters.
FrailSafe’s Cypriot partner Materia Group conducted an interview with two insurance brokers about their perception of FrailSafe.

On 5 March, FrailSafe organized a joint webinar with the WHO on “Intrinsic Capacities”.
Together with another EU-funded project focused on frailty prevention, ADVANTAGE JA, we organize a webinar on 19 October at 10.30 - 11.30 (CET)
The EU FrailSafe project has joint forces with the WHO Ageing and Life Course Department for a webinar
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.

The Loss of Orientation is a potentially life-threatening and a common behavior seen among older people, specifically people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The EU funded project FrailSafe, focused on a personalized approach towards frailty using innovative technologies and running for the last three years, has reached its evaluation phase.
Cognitive skills are an important aspect to be measured when it comes to frailty.
Our team is happy to announce that the final conference of the EU FrailSafe project will take place on 3 April 2019 in Brussels.
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.
