ESSENCE builds upon the results of MoveCare H2020 and adopts an iterative optimization process between two pillars – technology transfer of a subset of successful modules and feedback received from testing on target users – with the final target of achieving CE mark and promptly entering the mark
The ESSENCE system consists of three main components:
– the Community-Based Activity Center (CBAC), a holistic platform, based on virtual rooms, providing a series of diverse activities with declared recreational, socialization, educational, and assistive purposes;
– the Monitoring Module, that gathers heterogeneous information from the activities mediated by the CBAC, a smart ink pen, and diverse applications to extract cognitive, physical, and emotion-related indicators. AI is exploited to provide personalized feedback, and alerts for deviations from physiological behaviors;
– the ESSENCE Manager, that acts as the system control unit to manage user profiling, system configuration, possible system malfunctioning, and delivery of notifications, alerts, or feedback.
Through ESSENCE, a multi-level user empowerment will be promoted both by: (i) delivering empathic feedback aimed at maximizing engagement and relieving stress; (ii) producing alerts on potential risks to family members and health and education professionals aimed at fostering early detection of possible weaknesses and anticipation of care.
