With the trial release of the eWALL platform rapidly approaching, it’s time to start showing off the fruits of our labor to the general public. For that purpose, the eWALL platform was put on display on January 22nd of this year, during the Dutch “eHealth City Relay Race”. This event is organized as an exchange of knowledge between cities in the Netherlands on how to use ICT to promote independent living of the elderly. Previously organized in Alkmaar and Woerden, this time the tour passed through Enschede, and eWALL was there to greet the guests.

The guests were able to see a glimpse of the near future with the eWALL platform. How the platform can assist elderly in performing exercises at home, keep track of their sleep, physical activity, and daily life activities and even control their homes with the use of integrated domotics control. Blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heartrate could be measured and the results viewed on the screen in near real-time.

The reactions of the visitors were very positive! In fact, the system was received so well, that we left the eWALL behind in the venue of the event: the Living Lab of the Twentse Zorgacademie (TZA) for visitors of the Living Lab to experience…
