  • Increase of physical activity levels of elderly
  • Combination of wearable and ambient sensors
  • Data analytics and prediction
  • Personalized interventions

The project abbreviation stands for Responsive Engagement of the Elderly Promoting Activity and Customized Healthcare. The proposal for this project was developed in 2015 and submitted under pillar 3 of H2020 in societal challenge 1 Personalized Healthcare (PHC). In the European consortium with 17 partners from higher education institutions and industry, the four EuroTech Universities along with the industry partners (including leading European health care technology, rehabilitation, and care and hospital firms) build the core of this project. The total grant amounts around 6 Million Euros.

During the four year’s life span of the project, the consortium will work on modular, personalized medical and ethical acceptable solutions integrated in and around buildings (clinical environments, rehabilitation settings, care homes, and home care), which allow an intelligent prediction (considering both personal medical history as well as real-time gathered data from a series of embedded sensors) about the health status of people/patients. Based on forecast and analytic algorithms REACH will allow to provide novel, personalized interventions (customized services, products, and equipment for mobilization and rehabilitation, physical activity, training, food and nutrition, mobility, and patient motivation).
