Futur.e.s Festival 2019

Through a round of conferences, new collaborative formats, and unusual artistic experiments the festival offers a unique experience. The festival’s mission is to engage and inspire both, its exhibitors as well as its visitors.

During this edition, Futur.e.s Festival focused on sustainable cities, and the development of user-friendly innovations to promote access to services and infrastructures using digital technologies.

The festival highlighted all forms of innovations dedicated to better serve the users in their daily needs and preoccupations.

The FRAIL Project at Futur.e.s

The FRAIL project was part of the demos in the “Healthcare and well-being” category. The project was considered one of the most promising in its group.

The FRAIL smart-watch app fits perfectly among the latest innovations in the predictive and personalized medicine market. The app’s main goal is to detect the early onset of the frailty and minimize its negative consequences. The app will monitor three key aspects: fall risk, physical activity indicators, and activities of daily living. The app’s target users are frail and pre-frail elderly.

Keeping seniors active and healthy is beneficial not only for them but also for their caregivers, healthcare system, and tax-payers.

At the festival, the FRAIL Project consortium, supported by the EIT Health France Communication team, presented its innovative smartwatch app as well as the first impressions from an ongoing pilot testing.

The FRAIL Project representatives met with other participants and investors in the healthcare sector to gain insight into the industry.

Participating in Futur.e.s Festival 2019 Edition was an excellent opportunity for the FRAIL Project. One of the biggest benefits was a chance to present the FRAIL app to potential users and get their opinions, suggestions, and expectations.
