Kibi allows the elderly to keep their independence for as long as possible, living at home even when some form of assistance is necessary; permits the family to assist their loved ones, without invading their privacy; provides residential facilities with an effective tool to better assist their guests.
Kibi is composed of a wearable device (Kibi wear) and some proximity sensors to be placed in the house (Kibi near).
The level of well-being of the person is related to the so-called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs are the daily activities related to movement, rest, nutrition and personal hygiene.
The detection of these activities makes it possible to measure the person’s well-being index, her/his level of independence, and changes over time.
