Assistive media for health and wellbeing in ageing: UK and Brazil network


The proposed project is a collaborative research activity and network between the University of Surrey, University of Sao Paulo and Federal University of Sao Carlos. It tries to fill a gap in the research and development of mobile device applications for older users, including tools for assisted living, monitoring, e-health care and wellbeing. In particular, it addresses this area from an 'assistive media' perspective, combining insights from multiple research strands across these three universities, exploring the use of digital media content for remote monitoring, communication and advice in the ageing population. This will comprise a collaborative interdisciplinary research network funded by FAPESP and University of Surrey jointly. The USP and UFSCar team complements research at Surrey in terms of expertise in Computer Science, Gerontology, and wellbeing. The Surrey team expertise is healthcare, digital storytelling and interaction design. (AU)
