Living Lab Activ8
The mission of Living Lab Activ8 is to prevent the lack of movement among elderly people through the Activ8 activity tracker. By using the Activ8, elderly people will be more stimulated to move and disorders related to sedentary behavior can be prevented.
Physical inactivity is one of the most important influenceable risk factors for chronic diseases, leading to a reduced quality of life and higher mortality rate. It triggers the development of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Physical inactivity is of influence on health and therefore an essential target for prevention. To change behaviour it is crucial to make people aware of their behaviour and to monitor possible adaptations. But how do you ‘count’ the amount of movements? And how do you stimulate an active lifestyle?

Direct feedback for Parkinson patients to improve mobility and posture with optional remote activity logging for care providers
The UPRIGHT is a innovative care solution that assists Parkinson patients in their daily life. The UPRIGHT reduces the occurrence of freezes and standstills using cueing signals. The benefit of such cueing signals has been medically validated by the VU medical center in Amsterdam.
The UPRIGHT informs a patient when they are walking, sitting or standing in a crouched position. This is a typical problem Parkinson’s patients encounter as they themselves don’t notice the crouching. A warning signal is given to remind the patient when their posture strays from the intended posture.
Furthermore it gives health care providers an objective summary of a patient’s physical activity level or changes in their body posture. The device can be worn underneath or outside everyday clothes and is powered by rechargeable batteries.
