Frailty leads to reduced competence in activities of daily living, independence, as well as secondary health problems and threats, e.g. falls, depression, anxiety and isolation. Frailty in persons with dementia interacts within a “vicious circle”, promoting physical decline. CO-TRAIN will develop a coaching system for functional exercise training of frail people with dementia, consisting of training programs, a mobile sensor system with software for movement analysis and tracking, a web-based coaching portal and guidelines for motivating training instructions and online feedback on a smartphone.
