VR2Care project aims an innovative approach for physical activity, training and rehabilitation, in smart living environments by providing intelligent interfaces in a single or multi-user environment. The solution combines virtual reality technologies for supervised exercise with natural interaction techniques, enhancing socialization with gamification aspects in the practice of physical activity in a metaverse context. VR2Care goes beyond the common requirements as it is co-designed with active participation of older adults, caregivers, therapists, community and clinicians to provide a full immersive multi-user experience. This paper discuss the system design options and the architectural challenges to support the VR2Care digital ecosystem.
