The Assistive System of EVGIRASKO Project
The EVGIRASKO Project focuses on the use of smart mobile devices for the benefit of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia symptoms. It implements a mobile application suite which provides a range of supportive functionalities mainly for people with memory difficulties. The application will be downloadable on smart mobile devices via widely used app markets on the Internet. It is an efficient mobile application, which can be used by caregivers and other organizations involved in the support of people with special needs, as well as by those assisted persons themselves, to create assistive services and educational activities. The evaluation of diverse activities and services can give important data, which will be useful for other development efforts of auxiliary applications.
The key features of the application are:
Daily Routine Support: Caregiver can record audio reminders to keep the assisted person informed and active.
Music Therapy & Entertainment: Custom music starts and stops with the click of a button.
Remember Happy Moments – Education & Training: The assisted person, can browse photos and hear a narration for each photo. This can be for educational purposes or to help people remember happy moments of the past.
Cognitive Improvement Exercises: Caregiver can create personalized games in the field of the interests of the assisted person.
Social Inclusion: The assisted person can browse a contact list with pictures and make calls simply with a click on the picture or the call button under it.
Feeling Safe: Automatically calls emergency contacts using the speakerphone, and sends custom SMS messages to preconfigured contacts.
Garegiver Settings: Caregiver can login in a password protected settings area and adjust almost everything that will appear at the screen of the assisted person.
The EVGIRASKO Project will develop and offer a Supportive Internet Platform, which will be used by caregiver organizations for the support of multiple persons. The platform will offer role based access control and high security and safety standards.
