Self-management of functional decline in older adults; LIFE

The aim of this project is to develop, implement and show the proof of concept of a multi-module, technology supported self-management (eHealth) program for older adults with functional decline called LIFE (Living Independently Functioning Older adults) that support them in deploying sustainable active behavior during everyday life.

The methodology within the project is an iterative social technical approach with different development and testing cycles. Sociotechnical approach means that end users and stakeholders are continuously involved in the process of user requirements elicitation, selecting of existing services, designing of the adapted services, testing of the adapted service. The actual testing of LIFE will be realized within the living labs that are being realized within the CCTR project called ‘eLabEL’ in primary care practices.

A technology-driven self-management program aimed to preserve a physically active lifestyle in older persons.
