Sustain a healthy lifestyle in Ambient Assisted Living and Active Healthy Ageing

With an ageing population and growing consumer empowerment, the call for a user-centric approach towards Health and Wellbeing is imperative. The mission of EIT Digital’s Action Line Health and Wellbeing is, to reduce the demand for expensive healthcare by detecting small physical and mental health issues early and avoid larger health problems by suitable lifestyle interventions. 

Jean Gelissen, Action Line Leader of Health and Wellbeing says "The challenge is to support people to live an uncompromised, safe and active life through to an advanced age. Enabling active healthy ageing and independent living while at the same time avoiding social exclusion." 

ICT enabled breakthroughs have to support the EU 2020 challenge to increase labour participation and independent living by 2 year. Ultimately, investments will pay handsome dividends not only in generating very viable and worthwhile opportunities but also in creating more affordable and quality of life preserving healthy ageing. With other words: an ounce of prevention now, is at least worth a pound of cure, later. Does this ring a bell? Drop a line in booth 99, Health and Wellbeing @Work 2016, NEC, Birmingham-UK, 8-9 March.
