Ideable Solutions were in Lisbon last week at the Santa Casa Misericórdia technology fair, showing off the latest technological advances in Kwido. Attendees did in particular participate in some fun “demos” on how Kwido‘s augmented reality helps the elderly to combat cognitive dysfunctions.
With the passage of time, older people suffering from cognitive disorders may see some executive functions that affect their day-to-day life seriously damaged. We are mainly talking about alterations in memory, perception and problem solving. With Kwido‘s augmented reality program, Ideable has developed exercises so that the elderly can use technology to strengthen their weaknesses. We also use virtual reality to combat cognitive impairment, with manual therapies that are being performed today with physical objects in day centres, care homes and memory workshops.
The main objective we pursue is to make it easier for the elderly to carry out their most routine activities. For example, one demonstration of augmented reality that the assistants carried out in Lisbon was to do some cooking. Kwido users can thus practice their cognitive functions at any time and place as if it were a game, e.g. while frying an egg.
At Ideable Solutions and Kwido we would like to express our gratitude to Santa Casa Misericordia de Lisboa for giving us the opportunity to present Kwido’s augmented reality program. We would also like to thank those attending the fair, who helped to make our games the most in-demand activities of the event.
And coming soon… Kwido in Portuguese. We continue working on our goal of making technology available to society, especially the elderly.
Santa Casa de Misericordia is a Portuguese non-profit institution that focuses its activities on social ends, especially in the areas of health, education and culture of the most disadvantaged. Since its creation at the end of the 15th century, its projects have been aimed at innovation and the promotion of initiatives in the social economy sector.

¿Do you need technological support in the digital transformation processes linked to health and elderly care? We are specialists
The AAL Info Day 2019 was held in Brussels a week ago , an initiative proposed by the AAL Programme organization to present European technological proposals for improving the lives of the elderly. The call for proposals focused on the application of technology for the elderly in different areas such as health care, leisure time, or mobility and transport.
As a leading company in technology for the elderly, Ideable Solutions was invited to attend. Our CEO, Iñaki Bartolomé, participated in a networking process with professionals and organizations working in Europe in the Silver Economy sector which is booming the moment.
Thanks to this session we will have the chance to present a project idea focused on improving mobility for the elderly. Its name is “Accessible Transport: an assistant to help elderlies’ mobility by using speech“, and it seeks to promote accessible transport for the elderly. By using an intelligent voice technology system, it will help them to move about very easily, with an extensive network of drivers specifically trained for care. The aim is to find European partners to work on this proposal and to present it at the call for proposals that the AAL Programme launches on that day.
At the same time, we also had the chance to share impressions and news about our own projects, as in the case of Kwido and Mementia. And to increase the visibility of other international projects in which we participate, such as zocaalo, PETAL, IOANNA and DAPAS.
At Ideable Solutions, we would like to thank the AAL Programme for the invitation to participate in this AAL Info Day 2019, and for giving us the opportunity to continue innovating and proposing improvements for the quality of life of our elders.
AAL PROGRAMME is a European funding programme that seeks to improve the quality of life in older age. To do this it encourages the creation of alliances between technology companies whose projects are geared towards active and healthy ageing. Since 2008 they have financed a total of 220 projects that promote different aspects such as mobility, social inclusion, accessibility for online platforms, etc.

The fifth edition of Basque Industry 4.0, The Meeting Point 2018, will take place next Monday 26th November at the Palacio Euskalduna in Bilbao. It is organised by the Basque Government’s Department of Economic Development and Infrastructures through the SPRI Group.
Ideable will have its own stand in the exhibition area and will present the new Field Vision system at this event. This system develops and defines new ways of offering value-added services to sectors linked to Industry 4.0, based on new concepts made possible by the technology that supports digital transformation.
At the event we will demonstrate how Field Vision technology, supported by advanced technological developments, can bring new capabilities to companies in Industry 4.0.
Field Vision is based on video calls and augmented reality to provide field technicians and customers with immediate online support from local offices using just a simple mobile phone, tablet or HoloLens glasses. For example, technicians in local facilities offer guidance from their own device to others who are working remotely in any other plant, even in another country; as such, they only need to receive a video call.
It allows incident analysis to be simply and immediately provided for machinery, open air, equipment, etc., detecting any problem quickly and efficiently.
Using these technologies, incidents can be solved and support provided more efficiently and in much less time. This means that the relevant information in our support system goes directly where the most powerful resources are, with huge cost reductions.
The premise is simple: transform data into valuable information that helps with decision making.
The objective of Field Vision: providing service and support to avoid losses in availability at expensive facilities, long start-up times and inconvenient journeys, as well as providing remote supervision of teams or planning/scheduling of maintenance tasks. These technologies are also integrated in ticketing systems, CRM systems or other corporate solutions.
“BASQUE INDUSTRY 4.0. THE MEETING POINT 2018” IS THE BIGGEST MEETING POINT FOR THE 4.0 INDUSTRY IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY.
The event focuses on EICT (electronics, information and communication technology) tools as a means for optimizing industrial processes. Intelligent tools to support design, development, production, logistics and integrated manufacturing management.
After four editions with increasing participation, this event has become the meeting point which annually gathers all the key stakeholders of this new industrial revolution. The Basque Country is in this way establishing itself as a leading region worldwide in exploiting the potential of new technologies in manufacturing processes, Industry 4.0. In addition, the event combines first-rate speeches, the presentation of case studies, workshops, interviews, round tables, exhibitions and a demonstration area.
