The mHealthINX project will deliver a solution which combines three fundamental steps in mental health support, namely Indication, Intervention and Experience. The combination of these three in one mHealthINX system are intended for use by older employees (55+) who suffer from stress related symptoms. These symptoms may limit them in their work capacity or in the worst case result in sick leave.
The objective is that these solutions will reinforce the elderly people in their daily work by recognizing stress, avoid deterioration and complications and eventualy enable them to work again with pleasure without stress. The solutions are innovative and intended to be applied during daily work and/or at home.
Indication - a personal observer
Users will be able to measure, assess, and elaborate their personal stress level in a mobile and unobtrusive way via objective measurement devices and subjective (questionnaires, self-reported assessments) measures administered via the mHealthINX mobile solution.
The objective measurement devices are existing eHealth systems in combination with a new developed innovative device.
iNtervention: Personal guardian and personal advisor
The system will indicate critical stress levels via the personal guardian feature and suggest personalized and context-sensitive interventions via the personal advisor feature.
The personal guardian will monitor users’ overall de-stress progress and the personal advisor will support users in managing stressful situations.
eXperience: Personal trainer
The mHealthINX system will provide an entirely novel intervention eXperience, which uses synergies between classical, established technologies and innovative, future-oriented technologies.
In public settings, such as the working environment, mHealthINX will provide classical, unobtrusive, GUI- and 2D-based interventions directly on the user’s mobile phone.
In very stressful situations and in more private settings, such as in the user’s home environment, mHealthINX will provide innovative, VR- and 3D-based interventions and trainings which will coach and support users in managing their daily work in a stressless manner.
