TURNTABLE
Platform supporting vitality and abilities of elderly

Challenge

TURNTABLE is a white label ICT platform targeting users in the 65+ user group. It will be sold to mobile network operators so they can provide an additional service to easily reach this currently underserved user segment. The presence of first early adopters - mobile network operators NOS and A1 in the consortium confirms the validity of the route to market.

Solution

TURNTABLE primarily addresses the challenge of vitality and ability of the elderly. As people age, they tend to become more sedentary and less active. This worsens the normal age-related decline in both physical and cognitive functioning. There is a continued decline in muscle mass, strength and power, falls become more frequent and dangerous, and everyday tasks become more intimidating. These difficulties may interfere with the maintenance of a good nutritional status as well as with the older adults’ everyday functioning and participation in social activities.
