Background Public health recommendations and government measures during the COVID-19 pandemic have enforced restrictions on daily-living. While these measures are imperative to abate the spreading of COVID-19, the impact of these restrictions on mental health and emotional wellbeing is undefined. Therefore, an international online survey (ECLB-COVI...

Project
The main aim of the COST Action PhysAgeNet is to establish a sustainable network that will foster evidence-based research and practice of physical activity in older adults and will enhance integration of innovative ICT solutions based on open data consolidated research information, in order to promote health and reduce the burden of inactivity in ageing populations.

Project
In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic. WHO and public health authorities around the world are acting to contain the COVID-19 outbreak through home confinement. However, this time of crisis is generating stress throughout the population. The present survey aims to assess, in many countries, the effects of home confinement on multiple lifestyle behaviours during the COVID-19 outbreak. Identifying the exact changes in lifestyle behaviours during the confinement period (compared to before confinement) may help to provide efficient and effective suggestions/solutions (e.g., ICT-based solutions) to mitigate the possible unwanted psychosocial effects of home confinement.
Project
We are pleased to announce an exciting new project funded by the European Commission through the "Horizon 2020" research and innovation programme within ICT (Information and Communication Technologies). This exciting project proposes an integrated scalable and interactive care ecosystem for neurodegenerative diseases which will also be adaptable to other chronic conditions. This ecosystem should benefit all users from patients to caregivers to health professionals. It will find the best actions from both health and social points of view that will improve the quality of life for older people. It will provide a personalised and interactive model through gamification techniques which will support the user to adopt healthy habits, maintain daily routines and follow advice to maintain and improve their health condition. The consortium, made up of 14 partners from 6 EU countries including Kineticos – Driven Solutions LDA, Asociacion Parkinson Madrid, Universidad Politenica De Madrid, Universiteit Maastricht, Westfaelische Wilhelmsuniversirtaet Muenster, Casa Di Cura Privata del Policlinico SPA, ATOS SPAIN SA, Stelar Security Technology Law Research UG, Wohlfahrtswerk fur Badenwurttemburg, International Foundation for Integrated Care IFIC, , CNS Saude LDA, Siveco Romania SA, Universitatea de Medicina si Farmacie’Carol Davila’ din Bucuresti and Spitalul Universitar de Urgenta Bucuresti. The project is coordinated by Kinetikos – Driven Solutions LDA (Portugal) and was created to ensure full coverage of scientific, technological, clinical and social expertise in order to maximize the chances of success. The project which kicked off in January 2020 will span over a three year period and the consortia are already working on the development of their respective solutions.
