Assisting an elderly with early dementia using wireless sensors data in smarter safer home

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The primary aim of this study is to develop a Smart Assistive Living

    (SAL) platform to enable old people suffering from dementia to stay at home as

    long as possible. The technology used includes wireless sensor network and

    broadband network connectivity. The assistive technology aggregates sensor

    information about environmental, cognitive, physical and physiological factors

    and integrate them to support the delivery of telehealth and telecare services to

    older people with mild dementia. The plan for the testing and implementation of

    the technology and commercial roll out is also briefly outlined.
