The SMILING project is aimed at providing a technological solution to motor problems, particularly related to gait and balance such as the risk of falling, occurring in the elderly population. The contribution of the present paper is to provide an insight on the SMILING system prototype with a particular focus on the User Control Unit, that is a portable, wireless device designed to assist the user during training and to control the interaction with the different parts of the system. Furthermore, integration aspects are introduced and preliminary tests of the system with young healthy subjects are described.

Abstract

The SMILING project is aimed at providing a technological solution to motor problems, particularly related to gait and balance such as the risk of falling, occurring in the elderly population. The contribution of the present paper is to provide an insight on the SMILING system prototype with a particular focus on the User Control Unit, that is a portable, wireless device designed to assist the user during training and to control the interaction with the different parts of the system. Furthermore, integration aspects are introduced and preliminary tests of the system with young healthy subjects are described.
