AVECEN – Virtual assistant for the active aging of people with neurodegenerative mental illnesses

The goal of the AVECEN project is the development of a distributed platform that allows self-management of neurodegenerative mental illness by patients as well as decision-making by medical professionals and caregivers in their environment. To this end, we propose the creation of a dynamic virtual assistant that continuously monitors and evaluates the execution of certain clinical routines, making recommendations adapted to the patient’s condition and evaluating their frequent or habitual behavior at each moment, allowing their evolution to be understood throughout of time and assess to what extent a worsening of the state of health takes place. This is intended to improve the adherence of patients to clinical routines, prescribed treatment and, in general, good management practices of degenerative mental illnesses, such as physical activity, healthy lifestyle habits, psychological or cognitive evaluations.
