Prototype 2 is on its way
With a successful MTR behind us in the summer of 2019, the WellCo project consortium is now focusing on the second trial and thus the second prototype. In this new iteration of the WellCo app, a number of new functionalities will be added, such as advanced activities views, more social network functionalities, an improved set of video-chat functionalities and the ability to use push notifications to notify the user. Also, the developers are currently working hard on implementing the first version of the virtual coach into the app, in order to allow the first few recommendations to be given to the end user. Furthermore, the first version of an additional app for the caregivers will be developed, allowing interaction between both seniors and their formal and informal caregivers. Prototype 2 will be finalized in the coming months and will be evaluated with a trial that will span multiple weeks.
