Throughout the world and particularly in Europe, the average life expectancy of the population has dramatically increased in the last few decades [1]. European citizens are now living longer than ever before. According to the European Commission, it is expected that the percentage of older adults (65+ years old) will increase from 18% to 28% of the European Union (EU) population by the year 2060 [2]. This will indeed have a strong impact on the health and social care systems, as nations must find efficient ways to provide services to an increasing population of older people. The latter can be realized with the exploitation of new information and communication technologies (ICTs) such as the Internet of things (IoT).
