StayFitLonger: an integrated platform for healthy aging at home

The project aims to offer a program of physical and cognitive exercises for seniors. This program will be accessible through a mobile application including a virtual coach to boost adherence to the program. Thanks to their links with everyday life, the exercises proposed aim to extend the independence of seniors living at home. To validate the effects of the program, a randomized controlled trial will be conducted in Switzerland, Belgium and Canada among 128 people aged 60 and over. The physiotherapy department of the Haute Ecole de Santé Valais developed the physical exercises, the cognitive exercises are developed by the Leenaards Memory Center of the CHUV in collaboration with the Institut Universitaire de Gériatrie de Montréal. The application is developed jointly by the Institute of Information Systems of the HES-SO Valais in Sierre, by the Applied Imaging Institute of HE-Arc in Neuchâtel and by MindMaze, Lausanne. This project brings together health professionals and technicians in the service of seniors' autonomy.
