Mon Cap Santé

Mon Cap Santé is an industry research project designed to understand the needs of the senior population, particularly with respect to health services.

Participative momentum to understand the needs of elderly people in danger of losing their autonomy

In 2017, Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole launched a major research project with Kyomed, a Montpellier company specialized in e-health, to understand the needs of the senior population, particularly with respect to health services as well the needs of their aids and caregivers.

The collected information will help create solutions for unmet needs and validate the pilot deployment of prototype solutions by senior populations in city demonstrators. The goal is to support the emergence of co-designed and long-term innovative solutions.

A project with 3 main goals

This project seeks to co-design, deploy, and validate solutions and services that make it possible to assist seniors in their homes. The general idea is to focus on seniors who are somewhat dependent and extend the duration of their normal life time at home, with daily activities, such as going out, walking, and shopping, while preserving social contact and proximity with their own ecosystem in the Montpellier Métropole area.
Data from the study will also enable the laboratories involved to perform studies on individual behavior. This information may be used by Montpellier Métropole teams (such as the City Planning department) to adapt current infrastructure and services as well as to anticipate their evolution. All results will be made available to companies in the health sector (notably SMEs and startups) and laboratories to help them elaborate and test new use cases.
This project benefits from the momentum of Montpellier Métropole’s overall Smart City initiative. With it, Montpellier will be at the industry forefront in France, launching actions to truly get citizens involved in a participation-driven effort and to think about better ways to handle aging. By joining the concepts of aging and Smart City, local authorities further confirm the area’s role as a “Health Metropolis.”

Mon Cap Santé call-for-projects “Let’s innovate for being well and aging well”

Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, the University E-health Chair, City of Montpellier CCAS, and Kyomed INNOV have launched a nationwide call-for-projects seeking to preserve the health assets of elderly people in the greater Montpellier area.

The jury of experts selected one solution: Lili smart, which invites people to take care of their health by practicing adapted activities and promoting social ties. This includes physical activities to be practiced alone or as a group, taking walks, and attending cultural events. The voting public (over 1,300 people) selected a 2nd solution: a network called “Liberty, Equality, and Mobility” for businesses, Faciligo. The network enables travelers to help each other and makes mobility easier for people who wish to be accompanied. These solutions are planned to be operational and available for general use in early 2020.
