Addressing the lack of social, cognitive, and physical stimuli among elders is a key factor to contrast Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) that can arise during the third age. Against such background, agent-based technology has been applied to different application domains related to the assistance of elders. In this demo, we introduce an application of this kind: an activity center featuring social, cognitive, and physical activities targeted for elders. This activity center interacts with an…

Serious games to cognitively stimulate older adults: a systematic literature review

A systematic literature review is carried out in order to explore and analyse the various proposals in this field and identify the interactive devices that have been considered, the results achieved in terms of cognitive support, and current trends in this area.

Integrating Social Assistive Robots, IoT, Virtual Communities and Smart Objects to Assist at-Home Independently Living Elders: the MoveCare Project

This work presents the MoveCare system, an unobtrusive platform that, through the integration of a SAR into an AAL framework, aimed to monitor, assist and provide social, cognitive, and physical stimulation in the own houses of elders living alone and at risk of falling into frailty, and provides strong empirical evidence that Socially Assistive Robots integrated with monitoring and stimulation platforms can be successfully used for long-term support to older adults.

Towards Long-Term Deployment of a Mobile Robot for at-Home Ambient Assisted Living of the Elderly

The main components of the European project MoveCare, a multi-actor framework designed to assist pre-frail elders living alone, are illustrated and a preliminary experimental evaluation of the platform under the perspective of long-term autonomy (LTA) is presented.

Understanding How Sensory Changes Experienced by Individuals with a Range of Age-Related Cognitive Changes Can Affect Technology Use

This work begins to bridge the gap between the clinical knowledge of sensory changes and technology research and design through interviews with people with mild to moderate dementia, mild cognitive impairment, subjective cognitive decline, and healthcare professionals.

What is my Robot Doing? Remote Supervision to Support Robots for Older Adults Independent Living: a Field Study

Analyzing the impact of introducing a novel web-based Monitoring and Logging System (MLS) on the SARs reliability and user acceptance suggests that the use of the MLS during the pilot increased the acceptance of the SAR-based system in the event of failures and anomalies.

Conversational Agents for Elderly Interaction

The use of conversational agents and the main types of personalization used during interacting with the elderly are analyzed to show these solutions may have a positive impact on elderly's life.

The acceptability of TV-based game platforms as an instrument to support the cognitive evaluation of senior adults at home

This study provides initial evidence on the viability of a TV-based serious games approach for cognitive longitudinal screening at home with little intervention of clinical professionals, thus contributing to the early detection of cognitive impairments in the senior population.
