Workshop Home Monitoring Systems for Active Aging - 14 October 2014

The challenges for home monitoring systems are multifaceted: there is not only a need for soft- and hardware to obtain the required system functionality, including safety and security needs, a simple interface is also required, as well as reliable data interpretation and the possibility to deliver first aid from a distance. Monitoring systems in a hospital setting are well established, but to what extent is this also the case for home monitoring systems, and how helpful are they in elderly care?
