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.
