This piece of research describes an innovative e-health service that supports the cognitive and physical training of senior citizens and promotes their active ageing. The approach is adopted by the Long Lasting Memories (LLM) project, elements of which are discussed herein in the light of the functionalities provided to the users and the therapists. The aim of this work is to describe those technical elements that demonstrate the unique and integrative character of the LLM service, which is based on a modular Web service architecture, rendering the system available in different settings like the homes of seniors. The underlying database as well as the remote user interface empower therapists to set personalized training schemes, to view the progress of training sessions, as well as, adding new games and exercises into the system, thereby increasing the services sustainability and marketability. © 2011 IEEE.
