Objectives: vINCI develops an integrated and validated evidence-based IoT framework to deliver non-intrusive monitoring and support for older adults to augment professional health care giving. It integrates proven open-data analytics with innovative user-driven IoT devices in four standardised kits. vINCI aims to assist caregivers and provide smart care for older adults at out-patients clinics and outdoors. To verify, test (clinical validation), and identify its added value, two multi-disciplinary controlled pilots (in Romania and Cyprus) and open-call validation (in Slovenia) will be deployed.
