Smart Solutions for Ageing Well

Come-Back,  an employment and healthcare company specializing in clarification, guidance and teaching of citizens, has developed an IT screening tool "Inducas". Inducas combines physiology, social and physiotherapy theory with concrete evidence based knowledge and statistical information about the individual's “bigdata”. The purpose is to ensure the best overview of the individual citizen's situation. Thus, the system can assist to ensure that the right course of action is implemented as soon as possible, in that the citizen has a good life and a good quality of life. The strength of Come-Back's ICT-based solution Inducas is to combine soft values ​​from social and physical therapy with evidence-based statistics. Inducas is available in several varieties, including: to young people.

The project

The AAL 2018 project aims to develop a version of Inducas (“Inducas Elderly”), which targets elder people and their needs. Inducas Elderly will become a digital platform for screening and progression measurement of the elderly and to provide the elderly and their relatives with knowledge about what is needed for a better life. The system also provides information that can be used in elderly care and in the municipalities when the elderly are to be helped. It can also provide knowledge in nursing homes, and it can provide knowledge about the needs of the elderly, and good ideas for how the elderly make best use of their free time and get a good quality of life.

Inducas is currently a Danish system. The purpose of the AAL 2018 project is to make the system international and at the same time targeting systems for elderly people. The system will subsequently be purchased by the elderly themselves or by public institutions (eg municipalities) and other organizations in order to help the elderly.

The project includes activities to test and adapt Inducas Elderly in European municipalities and elderly organizations to demonstrate the impact of innovating using data and statistics alongside practical social theory and knowledge to ensure citizens a high quality of life. The project will include researchers who will use data from the system to set algorithms to provide recommendations for the elderly.

The project is a small collaborative project.

Partner profile

We are searching for international partners for testing and validating the ICT-based product, “Inducas Elderly”. This product will be developed by the project to assist elderly in having a better life. Testers could be organizations / municipalities.

Also we are searching for international partners to assist our Danish researchers to analyze data from the system. We have previously used (in the earlier development of Inducas) researchers from the University of Southern Denmark and used Danish municipalities. In the current project we are looking for international partners to assist with this task. Partners might be international researchers in private companies or in Universities.


We have further ideas for the actual project activities, but it will be relevant to discuss this with specific partners and jointly develop a project plan.
