SmartWork: Supporting Active and Healthy Ageing at Work for office Workers

"“Work ability” has been developed as an important multi-factorial concept that can be used to identify workers at risk of an imbalance between health, personal resources and work demands[2]. An individual’s work ability is determined by his or her perception of the demands at work and their ability to cope with them. The current challenge in using the concept is to establish adequate tools to evaluate and measure work ability continuously, in order to capture the changing and evolving functional and cognitive capacities of the worker in various contexts.  ...

The holistic approach for work ability modelling captures the attitudes and abilities of the ageing worker and enables decision support for personalised interventions for maintenance/improvement of work abilities. ...
The modelling of work ability will consider:

• generic user models (groups ofusers),
• personalised patient models,
• personalised emotion and stress models of the office worker,
• personalised cognitive models,
• contextual work tasks modelling,
• work motivation and values." p.35-36.

WellCo: Wellbeing and Health virtual Coach

"The WellCo European H2020 project (2017-2021), delivers a radical new information and communication technologies (ICT) based solution in the pro-vision of personalised advice, guidance,and follow-up for its users. Its goal is to encourage people to adopt healthier habits that help them maintain or improve their physical, cognitive, mental, and social well-being for as long as possible. Advice is given through behaviour change interventions tailored explicitly to each user. These interventions range from setting social goals to recommending activities around the seven areas defined in WellCo: cognitive stimulation, leisure and entertainment, supporting groups, physical activity, health status, nutrition, and tips (Figure 1). The behaviour change concept leverages the Behaviour Change Wheel model [2]." p.37.
