Iñaki Bartolomé, Kwido CEO, to take part in the UPV/EHU Summer Courses with the presentation entitled “Kwido: platform for monitoring health, cognitive stimulation and social skills. A success story”. on Friday 22 June at 10:10.
Iñaki Bartolomé will highlight the different areas that Kwido has specialised in, both in communication (tele-consultation) and in terms of monitoring health, with a very special mention being given to the Kwido Mementia cognitive stimulation platform, where he will discuss the praxia and gnosia engines and the results obtained from the studies carried out with Kwido Mementia.
He will also discuss the new projects that Kwido is working on, such as using virtual and augmented reality, monitoring the elderly at home and its participation in different R&D projects in Europe, where Ideable and Kwido are already leaders in the Silver Economy.
For Ideable it is an honour to be part of this major prestigious national event, which is celebrating its 37th edition in 2018. These UPV/EHU Summer Courses provide a forum to debate and think critically about a society which is constantly changing.
Objectives of the Summer Course on Research and Innovation into frailty and ageing:
- Examining the impact that an ageing population has on society.
- Looking at the frailty syndrome from different fields and focal points.
- Stimulating debate between the different players in our field.
- Presenting the different evaluation and prevention strategies being developed at regional, national and European levels.
- Showing the most recent results from research and innovation in the field of ageing at regional, national and European levels.
The objective of the course that we are going to take part in is to focus on the frailty syndrome, a situation that combines various factors that are very common in the elderly and in which the functional reserve and ability to adapt are reduced.
A common precursor to loss of autonomy and, therefore, the dependency threshold, frailty, unlike dependency, is reversible. Early identification of those suffering from it, as well as accurate evaluation, will therefore prevent or slow down dependency. This will improve the quality of life for these people and help to control the social, family and health costs associated with dependency.
During the workshops, the latest advances in research and innovation will be presented in different fields such as Biology, Medicine, Primary Care, and Technology, and with Kwido cited as a success story.
The Summer Course is organised by the consortium comprised of the Biodonostia Institute, Tecnalia, the University of the Basque Country/ Eukal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), Vicomtech, Cidetec, IK4-Tekniker and the Matia Institute.

What are the goals for the zocaalo marketplace?
- To facilitate the widespread uptake of accessible and easy-to-use apps for elderly users and/or caregivers. These apps are certified as suitable for the needs and requirements of elderly people
- To provide eldercare sector professionals with apps to adopt for helping their current services or build new ones.
- To provide validated tools and experts for the apps developers to improve efficiency and synergetic development of apps for eldercare sector and elderly users.
In this pitch, we will also offer access to the webinar in which everyone can know more about zocaalo, and can apply with their apps for the certification process that will be for free only for some weeks during this summer.
AAL2Business is a three-year support action launched by the AAL Joint Programme. Its main objective is to help companies in their business development and commercialisation challenges related to solutions developed under AAL projects.
It offers a wide variety of support actions addressing AAL JP projects in different stages of their lifecycle: from before obtaining the funding until after the end of the project.
This session is supported by the AAL Programme. The Active and Assisted Living (AAL) Programme promotes innovative technological product ideas and services for active and healthy ageing, supporting them until they launch on the market.
