Project: Evaluation of a test system to measure safe force thresholds on delicate tissue

2018 – 2020

Project goal: The project aims at supporting aging in place by means of an intelligent AI-based system making use of wireless sensors and data analytics that monitors activities of daily living (ADL). The system will be able extract and learn subject specific patterns of ADL from WiFi data in order to detect abnormal activities and generate appropriate alerts.

This platform provides the following features and benefits:

  • It is passive/unobtrusive,
  • Adapts to user behavior, but also to various network setups and environment configurations
  • Enables care staff to monitor health and wellbeing of residents from a remote location.
