Piattaforma di localizzazione persone con disturbi cognitivi e demenza

PollicIoT wants to respond effectively to the needs of more than 25 million people affected by Alzheimer's disease worldwide, 520,000 only in Italy. PollicIoT offers, in a Smart Health Assisted Living scenario, a comprehensive solution dedicated to the care of Alzheimer's patients: from a Web platform, the caregiver will be able to locate the patient or receive alarm notifications in the event of a fall or exit from predefined perimeters, thanks to a Wearable device equipped with GPS sensors that identify the position and the movements of the patient. PollicIoT's ultimate goal is to create a Location Platform for people with cognitive and dementia disorders who can move away from where they live without being able to return, developing a solution to support caregivers to prevent escape phenomena or receive real-time alarms in case of falls, ensuring timely intervention. The testing phase of the project, which will take place at the ASP Moro in Codroipo, will result in the collection of a database that can be studied for predictive estimates of abnormal behaviors. Experimentation will also help to evaluate the quality of life of caregivers thanks to the platform. A further result will be the identification of the characteristics of a person's movements, both in recognizing abnormal behaviors that can prompt an intervention and for monitoring to identify signs of worsening of the disease. PollicIoT is a project financed by the Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia under the POR FESR 2014-2020, activity 1.3.b
