Project: CareLink for Dementia sufferers and their community

Acronym CARELINK (Reference Number: aal-2016-3-049)
Duration 01/08/2017 - 01/02/2020
Project Topic The project objectives are to design an innovative wearable tag for Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients, with the aid of end-users groups, that is part of a wireless sensor tag suite that is capable of providing proximity and location information for the wearer that is low cost, robust and energy efficient. In addition we will design and develop a cloud-based platform to support a personalised connected solution to enable carers to monitor the proximity and location of patients and interact with the system remotely, as well as incorporating an information sharing and education and training component into the platform that will encourage information sharing, discussions and training. Due to the nature of the matter at hand, privacy, security and ethics will be key focusses in this project.
