Summary of the Project
MIND & GAIT involves six Portuguese partners (the Nursing School of Coimbra, the Polytechnic Institutes of Coimbra, Leiria, and Santarém, Cáritas Diocesana de Coimbra, and Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Alcobaça) and intends to develop a combined intervention to older adults, composed of a program of cognitive stimulation (by computer and through assisted animal therapy) and a program of physical activity.
The expected outcomes also foresee the development of a self-locking device for walkers for the purposes of safety.
