FreeWalker will integrate several proven components of AAL assistive devices and technologies, for a flexible and versatile solution for guiding and monitoring elderly or impaired persons in the outdoor environment and supporting caregivers by providing emergency information to recover disoriented persons safely. The primary target groups in FreeWalker are persons with cognitive impairments living at home or in an intramural care organisation, and their (in)formal carers. We aim to promote person with frailty to stay active and physically healthy by reducing the fear of going out.
