Wearable-based Sensing to Promote the Elderly’s Mobility

Wearable-based Sensing to Promote the Elderly’s Mobility

WEARABLE-BASED PHYSIOLOGICAL SENSING TO PROMOTE THE ELDERLY’S MOBILITY

Team: SangHyun Lee (CoE) and Philippa Clarke (School of Public Health and ISR)

Summary: Researchers aim to develop and test a wearable-based physiological and collective sensing framework that detects the elderly’s distress in the built environment without substantially interfering with their daily life. The goal of this research is to facilitate deep understanding of how the elderly interact with the built-environment, which will open the door toward diverse interventions for promoting the elderly’s mobility.
