ABOUT THE ACESO PROJECT
Leading dental care manufacturers are envisioning a world where daily oral health routine allows consumers to take care of health comprehensively. ACESO is paving part of the way by involving older adults and elderly along with their physicians in a co-creative approach to realize an integrated health and oral-care platform in which intelligent devices use data analytics for adaptable health and wellbeing. The uniqueness of the platform originates from its underlying intelligence and adaptability as well as from a holistic approach to physical and oral care. Our patient-centric approach brings clear benefits for the elderly while supporting professional caregivers (doctors, nurses, dentists, etc) to optimize their practice, improve their care and reach out to a larger number of patients even if living in remote areas.
The main functionalities of the ACESO platform are:
monitoring physical health parameters and oral hygiene
calendar reminders for users
maintaining oral care through personalized brushing experience extracted from the user’s brushing behaviour
assessment tools for caregivers who will be able to optimize care interventions and to coach their patients over time
The target market is composed of three major groups:
primary users are 60+ years old who suffers from modifications due to ageing regarding the whole body functionality (chronic cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are mainly considered);
secondary users, i.e. dentists and hygienists;
tertiary users: insurance companies which will be also considered for the business and exploitation aspects of the project.
The objectives of the ACESO platform are:
Monitoring of parameters related to physical health (blood pressure meter, glucose meter, etc) and activity- and sleep- monitoring sensors: e.g. FitBit, Xiaomi bracelets) and oral hygiene in an integrative manner which provides primary users with personalized and adaptive feedback extracted by the underlying AI engine;
User-centric approach by actively involving users in maintaining their health (reminders for regular monitoring, timely medication and self-care) - personalized calendar;
Improved oral care through personalized brushing experience extracted from the user’s brushing behaviour over time using smart toothbrushes (e.g. Philips DiamondClean Smart, Oral-B Genius series, Xiaomi Soocare X3) and salivary stimulation devices;
Remote digital assessment tools for caregivers who will be able to optimize care interventions and to coach their patients over time, helping them to form better routines or recover from a treatment.
The project is partially funded by a grant of the European Commission through the Active and Assistive Living Program (AAL).
