Article
Objective: Remote telepresence provided by tele-operated robotics represents a new means for obtaining important health information, improving older adults' social and daily functioning and providing peace of mind to family members and caregivers who live remotely. In this study we tested the feasibility of use and acceptance of a remotely control...

With the rising age of the population, there is increased need to help elderly maintain their independence. Smart homes, employing passive sensor networks and pervasive computing techniques, enable the unobtrusive assessment of activities and behaviors of the elderly which can be useful for health state assessment and intervention. Due to the multi...
Chapter
Full-text available
We discuss a new approach to patients' adherence to enhance to their medication-taking regimen by developing a context-aware alerting system that would optimize the expected utility of alerts. Each patient's instantaneous context is assessed using a real-time sensor network deploying a variety of sensors. The alerts are generated to optimize the ex...

This was a cross-sectional study of the ability of independently living healthy elders to follow a medication regimen. Participants were divided into a group with High Cognitive Function (HCF) or Low Cognitive Function (LCF) based on their scores on the ADAS-Cog. Thirty-eight participants aged 65 or older and living independently in the community f...

Full-text available
The ability to assess the neurological state of patients with neurodegenerative diseases on a continuous basis is an important component of future care for these chronically ill patients. In this paper we describe a set of algorithms to infer gait velocity and its variability using data from an unobtrusive sensor network by incorporating a simple d...
Article
Full-text available
The use of pervasive technologies to enable continuous patient monitoring and assessment in various setting outside of hospitals, lowering healthcare costs and allowing early detection of problems is discussed. A modified security system technology is a less obstructive alternative for home monitoring. Recent advances in wireless systems provide th...
Article
The current paradigm of clinic-focused healthcare is challenged by growing numbers of aging baby boomers and the concomitant cost of managing chronic health conditions. We have begun investigating an alternative to clinic-based health assessments, in which pervasive technologies are used to enable continuous monitoring and assessment of patients in...
