Long Lasting Memories (LLM) Project Presentation

  1. 1. Long Lasting Memories (LLM)<br />A unified solution for cognitive and physical health and autonomous living for senior citizens<br />CIP-ICT-PSP.2008.1.4 <br />Project No. 238904<br />
  2. 2. Topics<br />What is LLM<br />The components of LLM<br />The LLM trials<br />
  3. 3. What is LLM ?<br />Long Lasting Memories (LLM) is an integrated ICT platform which:<br />combines state-of-the-art cognitive exercises<br />with physical activity<br />in the framework of an<br />advanced ambient assisted living environment.<br />
  4. 4. LLM General Overview<br /><ul><li>LLM will offer support to elderly people and their relatives and families, by
  5. 5. monitoring of day to day activities of senior citizens and identifying imminent hazards,
  6. 6. helping them maintain their functionality in everyday tasks and communication,
  7. 7. increasing their self-esteem and alleviate symptoms relevant to cognitive decline, their loneliness and potential depression.</li></li></ul><li>LLM Objectives<br />Integrate two existing ICT solutions with physical training equipment, thus delivering innovative ageing well / independent-living support services for elders<br />Demonstrate the significant impact potential of LLM service in five different countries<br />Verify the technical, organisational and legal feasibility of LLM service along the complete value chain of stakeholders<br />Verify the sustainability, scalability and applicability of LLM services across Europe<br />5<br />

  60. 60. Indicators – Technology / Usability<br /><ul><li>Successful technology installation in the field is completed by trained staff within scheduled time frames
  61. 61. Number of technical support calls for non-training issues is within established threshold
  62. 62. Comparison of log files and system responses
  63. 63. End-user satisfaction levels regarding usability of the technology are within established threshold (interviews / questionnaires)
  64. 64. End-user satisfaction levels regarding formattractiveness(interviews / questionnaires)</li></li></ul><li>Indicators – health impact<br /><ul><li>End-user compliance with specified programme is within established target range.
  65. 65. End-users meet or exceed defined outcome measures:</li></ul>primary (neuropsychological testing) <br />secondary (real-world functionality outcomes).<br /><ul><li>Primary efficacy endpoint: </li></ul>Improvement of experimental group in standardized cognitive function and cognitive/motor activity in daily living relative to control groups.<br /><ul><li>Key secondary endpoint: </li></ul>Quality of life related to improvement in cognitive, motor and social function indices and autonomy. <br />Changes in abnormal brain waves that correlate with mild cognitive decline and dementia (MEG / EEG).<br />
  66. 66. Indicators – marketability<br /><ul><li>Technical staff, with defined minimum skill level, is able to effectively install the system without additional training
  67. 67. Reported technical problems are addressed on a timely basis
  68. 68. Based upon questionnaires and interviews, pilot organisations and end-users report a high level of satisfaction with the use of and results from the solution </li></ul>user-friendliness, usability, safety features, usefulness of actuators, correspondence to users’ perceived needs<br /><ul><li>Pricing of the solution is competitive
  69. 69. Solution deployment is delivered in a range of different elder care environments
