iCan integrates many features and services useful for the senior’s everyday life, making it simpler and more comfortable. We will create a holistic platform that is specially focused in being easy to be used by senior adults, keeping an appealing and user friendly interface. Most ICT-based projects that concern seniors, what is missing is the motivation given to them in order to occupy themselves with the solution. iCan focuses in this field, trying to make seniors want to use our solution, by features like smart gaming that connect them with their children and grand-children.
