  • Development of Indoor Localization System for Elderly Care Based on Device-Free Passive Method

    Rapidly aging population has become a global phenomenon. At the same time, people in modern society get busier in their career, traditional way to take care of elders in family cannot suit modern society trend. Therefore, how to utilize modern information technology into elderly care becomes an important and meaningful research issue. In this paper, we present the design, implement and evaluation of a localization based passive elderly care system. We believe that elders' everyday indoor position information is very helpful for elderly care. Considering privacy issue and some properties of elders, we choose radio based device-free passive (DFP) localization method to extract indoor position information. Our experiment results show that DFP method can achieve a rather high accuracy in indoor environment. Compared with other elderly care system, our system has some advantages such as easy to deploy, privacy protect, no need elders to participate etc.

  • The Study of Smart Elderly Care System

    The rapid aging of the global population has become a topic valued by all countries. At the same time, it also makes the issue of elderly care increasingly important. This paper focuses on elderly care institutions and proposes four care indicators. The four indicators are physiological function tracking, activity domain monitoring, fall prevention, and emergency help. This paper mainly uses smart clothes, BLE components and indoor positioning algorithm for smart elderly care system to collect the data from the residents in their daily life. After collecting the data, we will analyze the data to figure out the indicators we mention above. BLE components also have wearable detection, low power and signal loss warnings from preventing the device problem. Currently, this smart elderly care system is already imported to Taiwan's long-term care institutions.

  • Towards Lifestyle-Oriented and Personalised E-Services for Elderly Care

    Owing to demographic changes towards an increasing elderly population, research efforts have focused on exploring new service models aimed to ensure increased active and quality health and social life for the elderly. However, existing approaches often treat the elderly as compliant individuals, and deliver services through a series of discrete care episodes that hardly take account of the varied needs and lifestyles of the elderly, nor connect to the social networks, things and places around which the elderly have progressively built their lives. This position paper proposes to investigate the concept of personal lifestyle as an approach for informing the design of personalised e-services for elderly care. The goal is to identify the unmet needs and preferences of the elderly, and consequently develop lifestyle-oriented personalised active ageing e-services that take account of their usual habits, preconditions, preferences and circumstances in the provisioning of healthcare services to support independent living.

  • Location recognition for elderly-care robot services using received signal strength indicator and light sensors

    In this paper, we present a method of location recognition for elderly-care robot services in an indoor environment. In the proposed method, the user's location is determined more accurately through a fusion process of the available received signal strength indicator (RSSI) information and light sensor information using a wearable device. All the information is sent and stored in a server through a wireless sensor network. An acting user's device obtains the RSSI information of the neighboring fixed nodes. It also gathers illumination information in each node and extracts the feature data. The information is sent to the server wirelessly over the sensor network. The location is determined based on the fusion feature information. The proposed recognition function of the location is useful in the location tracking of elderly persons faced with an emergency situation in a nursing facility.

  • E-Health Services for Elderly Care Based on Google Cloud Messaging

    E-health healthcare can enable patients to access health information and medical services ubiquitously. Most elderly people may have chronic disease, and about 80% even have two or more chronic conditions. Drug misuse leads to serious consequences even beings life-threatening. In this sense, how to design an e-health care system for the elderly is an important and interesting issue. Up to date, there are various APPs to friendly remind for taking medicine. However, for most APPs, patients should type in all medical information term by term personally. Via the information and communication technologies, we propose an e-health elderly care APP by using Google Cloud Messaging (GCM). Via using push notification from GCM, our e-health services provide the elderly with health information (e.g., prescription, medication instruction, taking-medicine time, reminding schedule back to the clinic, health nursing) through smartphone automatically after seeing a doctor.

  • Elderly care notification system using hand posture recognition

    This paper proposes a hand posture recognition as an assistive tool for elderly care. The system uses Haar-like feature, Principle Component Analysis (PCA), and simulation web server for detection, recognition, and alert by order. Our system interprets the hand sign captured by web camera and alerts a caregiver via smart phone. Besides, a caregiver can also periodically check needs of an elder from a smart phone. So a caregiver can do other tasks more efficiently because he/she need not to be with an elder at all times. The empirical results show satisfactory performance of PCA and contour detection with hand posture recognition.

  • How smart city supports the travel of elderly care communities

    As aging society is inevitable, it is necessary to seek a reasonable elderly care model to face this problem. One of the solution is the construction of elderly care community. This study aims at exploring the ways to improve the services of elderly care community under the background of rapid developing Smart City technologies. Through interview and questionnaire, this paper gets the basic information and data about the present situation of elderly care services including demands, satisfaction and so on. By analyzing the data, the phenomenon is found that except for taking part in outdoor activities with the purpose of entertainment or exercise, the elderly tend to reduce travels within the community appropriately. In addition, it is found the elderly want to get more travel service with appropriate price to make life more convenient. According to these investigation results, this paper provides some methods based on Smart City technology to improve the travel status of elderly, like using the intelligence platform to improve quality of travel- related services in the elderly care community, which can be a reference for the construction of the future elderly care community.

  • A User Study of Wearable Product for Elderly Care - Taking Community Nursing Service as Example

    With the rapid development of it's economy, the aging population in China is getting larger. Therefore, effectively addressing the nursing problem of the elders and meeting their demands has become a major concern in Chinese society. As science and technology advances, wearable devices have become ubiquitous because of their unique features, such as portability and ease of use, which might be a feasible tool to provide desired service so as to solve such nursing problem of aging population. This paper conducts a user experiment with questionnaires to study the actual situation of current community nursing service from seven regions in order to collect user requirements of wearable devices and provides design method and guidelines for product designers of wearble device.

  • Mobile-phone based immobility tracking system for elderly care

    Over the last few decades, the world population structure has changed dramatically where the number of elderly people increases and that of young people decreases. The number of elderly people has now quadrupled from its number in 1950. It is projected to reach around the 2 billion by 2050. These statistics strongly indicate the fact that we are entering a super-aged society. Elderly people are usually encountered several problems resulting from age-related diseases. One of the major problems in the elderly is a decline in physical ability, generally called Immobility. Immobility consequently leads to a decline in ability to carry out Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), increased falls and other medical problems. It has significant effects on both physiological and psychological conditions of elderly people. To support medical staffs and caregivers, we propose an immobility tracking system that can analyze physical activities and identify immobility behavior of the elderly in timely fashion. Our system exploits an activity recognition service as a stream component. It utilizes acceleration force and angular velocity data derived from mobile-phone worn on the waist of the elderly to remotely monitor mobility-related activities of the elderly in real-time. The experimental results show that our proposed system achieves a high activity recognition rate - about 93.5% for overall accuracy with reasonable processing overheads.
