Iñaki Bartolomé presents Kwido as a success story at the UPV/EHU summer course.
For several years now Ideable has been developing and marketing Kwido, the cognitive stimulation platform that uses technology to provide care for the elderly.
As part of the UPV/EHU summer course, workshops on “Research and Innovation into frailty and ageing” will be held on 21 and 22 June at the Miramar Palace in Donostia.
Iñaki Bartolomé, Kwido CEO, to take part in the UPV/EHU Summer Courses with the presentation entitled “Kwido: platform for monitoring health, cognitive stimulation and social skills. A success story”. on Friday 22 June at 10:10.
Iñaki Bartolomé will highlight the different areas that Kwido has specialised in, both in communication (tele-consultation) and in terms of monitoring health, with a very special mention being given to the Kwido Mementia cognitive stimulation platform, where he will discuss the praxia and gnosia engines and the results obtained from the studies carried out with Kwido Mementia.
He will also discuss the new projects that Kwido is working on, such as using virtual and augmented reality, monitoring the elderly at home and its participation in different R&D projects in Europe, where Ideable and Kwido are already leaders in the Silver Economy.
For Ideable it is an honour to be part of this major prestigious national event, which is celebrating its 37th edition in 2018. These UPV/EHU Summer Courses provide a forum to debate and think critically about a society which is constantly changing.
Objectives of the Summer Course on Research and Innovation into frailty and ageing:
- Examining the impact that an ageing population has on society.
- Looking at the frailty syndrome from different fields and focal points.
- Stimulating debate between the different players in our field.
- Presenting the different evaluation and prevention strategies being developed at regional, national and European levels.
- Showing the most recent results from research and innovation in the field of ageing at regional, national and European levels.
The objective of the course that we are going to take part in is to focus on the frailty syndrome, a situation that combines various factors that are very common in the elderly and in which the functional reserve and ability to adapt are reduced.
A common precursor to loss of autonomy and, therefore, the dependency threshold, frailty, unlike dependency, is reversible. Early identification of those suffering from it, as well as accurate evaluation, will therefore prevent or slow down dependency. This will improve the quality of life for these people and help to control the social, family and health costs associated with dependency.
During the workshops, the latest advances in research and innovation will be presented in different fields such as Biology, Medicine, Primary Care, and Technology, and with Kwido cited as a success story.
The Summer Course is organised by the consortium comprised of the Biodonostia Institute, Tecnalia, the University of the Basque Country/ Eukal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), Vicomtech, Cidetec, IK4-Tekniker and the Matia Institute.
