Reference Use Cases:

RUC 1 – Daily Activity monitoring

RUC 2 – Integrated care

RUC 9 – Mobility monitoring and advice for active mobility

Resilience actions during COVID-19
During the COVID-19 new services were introduced in the pilots to attend the new situations of the users during the confinent and support emergency services. Specially usefull were the teleservices introduced to follow up chronic patients and remote monitoring of parameters (such as glucose). The trustworhiness in ACTIVAGE IoT ecosystem motivate users’ engagement.

Service benefits

Regarding the mobility scenario, the system has a positive impact in terms of quality of life of the participating drivers, their safety, comfort and awareness towards sustainable urban mobility, as evidenced by the monitored progress from the beginning to the end of the pilot. Similarly, in the Smart Home scenario, a positive overall progress was observed from the beginning until the end of the pilot, in terms of their ability to perform activities of daily living, the Quality of Life of both the older persons and their caregivers, and their self-confidence about their own abilities and the use of the system.

A similar comparison of the results of the CarerQoL questionnaire across the three phases of the pilot is shown in the following figure:

Service acceptance

Service acceptance was measured using a validated questionnaire UT-AUT. The analysis focused on the treatment effects of the different RUCs.

Simplified and easy to utilize applications and devices, to gain high acceptance by the older people who lack technological background.

Cost effectiveness

A piggy-back Health Technology Assessment (HTA) trial design was used for the economic analysis, which was embedded in a clinical trial. Additional economic cost and outcome data were collected and analyzed, but the trial itself was designed according to clinical issues. The CUA was performed based on the MAFEIP tool.
