Slowing down the growth of healthcare expenses while maintaining the quality of life during the working life and at higher age is the focus of the Digital Wellbeing Action Line, through prevention of and coping with mental and physical conditions. Ageing, working longer, and living longer unfortunately do not imply that there are also more healthy work and living years. The result is a strong increase in occupational and individual healthcare costs.
The Digital Wellbeing Action Line leverages digital technologies to stay healthy (prevention and early detection) or cope with an existing chronic condition. Both physical and mental wellbeing are considered. The solutions generally rely on enabling consumers to be well-informed about their wellbeing and to be able to use digital instrumentation to monitor and improve their quality of life, according to the motto “an ounce of prevention is worth at least a pound of cure”.
The development and introduction of products (unobtrusive sensors and actuators and associated software services) targeted at occupational and private health and fitness is the approach to tackle these challenges. The clear focus is on measures supporting prevention or secondary care for both physical and cognitive/mental impairments. Close cooperation between the diverse stakeholders and field trials are needed to ensure that solutions are feasible from a market perspective.
