FRAIL Project

"For movement scientists, wearables open the lab to the world. FRAIL builds on these new opportunities to support self-determined living in old age."

Frailty Assessment in Daily Living

FRAIL is a project to develop a smartwatch app that supports elderly individuals who are in a pre-frail or frail state. The app will monitor for falls, level of physical activity and interruption of routine activities, to help detect the onset of frailty and to prevent its consequences among the wearers.
