The SHAPES App is now up and running and we are delighted that we have recruited our first volunteers. The SHAPES project aims to improve healthy ageing at home through the use of technology.

Volunteers will self-monitor their health conditions using a number of clinical devices and the results will automatically be uploaded onto the APP enabling participants to keep track of their weight, blood pressure and blood sugars easily and on a daily basis.

MOIC programme managers are working closely with clinicians, participants and the wider SHAPES team to analyse the effectiveness of the technology and monitor outcomes.

We are using the eCare – Personlised Care Intelligence Platform to capture the data from our volunteers. To find out more about this and the project throughout Europe view the latest brochure.
