Concerning frailty, the use of home-based technology able to continuously and transparently monitor the independent elder may represent a useful tool to support the traditional geriatric assessment in the identification of elderly people at risk of frailty, with the final aim of guiding the development of early preventive interventions. To this aim, the European MoveCare project develops an ICT platform to support the independent living of the elder at home. Here, we describe how home-based monitoring of frailty is addressed within MoveCare, specifically for the five Fried criteria. The platform leverages a net of heterogeneous sensors a service robot, and the use of gamification to achieve ecological monitoring of frailty through quantitative measurements transparently recorded during common daily-life activities. The indicators collected over time are fed to the reasoning entity of the platform to provide informal caregivers with relevant information on the elder's status.
