eWall: Smart wall to make life easier, Published on 13/01/2017
“The daily life of people with chronic diseases and frailty conditions is difficult”. A group of more than 100 researchers from 13 partners and 12 countries knows that very well. With the financial support of the EU, they invested around 9M€ over the past 3 years to deliver a solution that could change the life of people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and frailty conditions.
eWALL is a solution designed specifically for people with chronic diseases or frailty that brings back a normal and safe life at home. “It is simple to use and very effective“, according to scientific coordinator Sofoklis Kyriazakos of Aalborg University.
Based on an integrated sensing infrastructure, eWALL connects houses into its cloud platform and transforms them into so called Home Caring Environments. Kyriazakos: “Users can enjoy an increased quality of life, without the feeling of being monitored or controlled, by using a variety of intelligent apps available through the eWALL cloud. At the same time, physicians, caregivers and relatives can be in contact with their people and contribute to their life comfort.”
eWALL is leveraging future Internet technologies (cloud, IoT, BigData) to meet demanding user needs; among them to be easy, unobtrusive and of course effective. Based on an integrated sensing infrastructure, eWALL connects houses into its cloud platform and transforms them into Home Caring Environments.
