In the last years, a rapid increase of life expectancy has been observed and thus ageing is becoming a hot topic in different research fields. Ensuring the wellbeing of elderly people has a positive impact on healthcare, economy and social equality and thus developing a system that takes into account and integrates physiological parameters, cognitive and physical training, elderly-user experience and perception of the system itself, may represent an innovative multi-modal mean through which ameliorate older people wellbeing.
