Friday, 9th March 2018 was a milestone date for ICT4Life: The pilots were launched in France under E-Seniors’ supervision!
Firstly, we would like to thank the Day Care Center Renée Ortin in Sarcelles (Paris Region) to welcome our project! The team is very helpful und passionate about discovering new technological developments in health care.
The pilots’ process started with some interviews: patients and staff were asked to answer several questions that will allow E-Seniors to monitor various parameters to validate the technology. E-Seniors’ team will go to the Day Care Center every fifteen days in order to conduct observation sessions.
Participants in the field trial will be asked every month to fill in a questionnaire allowing E-Seniors’ team to collect a regular feedback on organizational, physical and psychological aspects, such as non-verbal interactions with the technology or the other seniors.
Four patients diagnosed with Alzheimers’ disease or any other kind of dementia and three health professionals will test ICT4Life in real conditions during three months. Let’s the adventure get started!
