The purpose

The objective of this study is to validate the prototype of the WeTakeCare- system in the real environment (=end users homes) and is embedded in Work-Package 4 (validation and evaluation) with the following main tasks: T4.1. Definition of methodologies and protocols T4.2. First validation: concept assessment T4.3. Second validation: functional assessment T4.4. Third validation: real environment T4.5. Final check Within the validation phase III of our project the investigators want to validate the contents of our fitness and information software WeTakeCare with the target group: elderly and their unprofessional caregivers. It runs on the Microsoft Kinect-System, which is authorised in Switzerland, and is in accordance with the prescribing information. The fitness- and information software contains information about strategies and devices which are available in case an older person is not able to perform the everyday movements in a safe and easy way. Aim of the training and information software is to support elderly to stay independent from others help as long as possible. The mentioned software is not a medical or therapeutical treatment or a medical or therapeutical product. Performed exercises or presented information are highly regarded in the interest of safety and protection of the participants, and serves to prevent physical restrictions or damage . There is only minimal risk or burden for the participants; the contents of the intervention itself (training of basic motor skills, instruction of strategies and the use of assistive devices to (partly) compensate restrictions in ADL performance, enablement of caregivers) are a standard in rehabilitation of elderly. The investigators expect the start of the third validation in October 2015.
