RADAR-AD represented at 12th Panhellenic Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease and the 4th Mediterranean Conference on Neurodegenerative Diseases

Thursday 18 March 2021

The RADAR-AD project was represented at the 12th Panhellenic Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease (PICAD) and the 4th Mediterranean Conference on Neurodegenerative Diseases (MeCOND), between 18 and 21 February 2021. Thanos Stavropoulos, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH), who works on RADAR-AD’s device selection and analytics, together with his fellow research associates from CERTH represented the project, at PICAD and MeCoND. He introduced the audience to the RADAR-AD project by focusing on the study setup, data collection methods and platform integration and talked specifically about the Banking App that the RADAR-AD consortium developed for the main study. He explained that the RADAR-AD study is already taking place in several European countries, and aims at leveraging different combinations of wearables, smart home devices and applications, in three different settings: during a lab assessment visit, independent living at home and a fully equipped digital smart home. To achieve this goal, the RADAR-AD consortium has selected wearable devices and built applications that can collect digital biomarkers for critical functional domains. One example is the Banking App, which is used in the first or main RADAR AD study to assess the ability of people living with Alzheimer’s disease to manage finances by using an ATM simulation.
