Intelligent Assistant Carer for Active Aging
With average life expectancy increasing, we must find ways to enable the elderly to live a high-quality independent life at home for as long as possible and to facilitate the nursing-home care.
Advances in medicine and living conditions are significantly increasing average life expectancy. Challenges exist to enable the elderly to live a high-quality independent life at home for as long as possible and, second, to facilitate the care provided in the nursing homes. Research published in EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing presents a concept of an Intelligent Assistant Carer system designed to help active aging and the interactions with carers. In the paper, “Intelligent Assistant Carer for Active Aging,” the authors explain that the modular system allows users to choose functions according to their needs, and built on an open platform which is compatible with third-party products and services. Currently, the system consists of a wearable device (a smartwatch) and an internet portal that manages the data and takes care of the interactions between the user, the carers, and the support services.
