Linguistic Summarization of Sensor Data for Early Illness Recognition in Eldercare

Extracting information from the sensors installed in the homes of elderly pose a unique set of challenges. Add to it the short amount of time the clinicians and nurses have to analyze this data, and the problem becomes more complicated. The ongoing work in this project focuses on development of algorithms to glean information from in-home sensor data and then presenting it in the form of textual summaries using Natural Language Generation techniques.

Intelligent Sensor System for Early Illness Alerts in Senior Housing

In this randomized controlled study, we are investigating and refining health alerts produced by environmentally-embedded in-home sensor networks designed to detect early signs of health change and functional decline in older adults, the keys to successful intervention.

EAGER: An In-Home Health Alert System with Remote Care Coordination

In this project, we test the concept in senior housing in Cedar Falls, Iowa, using in-home sensors and remote video conferencing for the nurse care coordination. Fiber networking in Columbia and Cedar Falls will provide the bandwidth and latency essential for this approach. Previous system development is utilized and a new hydraulic bed sensor has been integrated. The sensor configuration also includes the team’s previous work with the Kinect depth images for extracting gait parameters of residents in the home.

SHB: Computational Algorithms for Predictive Health Assessment

The main goal of this work was to develop algorithms for early illness recognition in elderly. Early illness recognition (EIR) is important, as research has shown that results in better medical outcomes and a reduction in health care cost. We developed methodologies (see Figure 1) that link sensor data to the medical (nursing) records for monitoring the residents of TigerPlace, an aging in place community from Columbia, Missouri.

Technology to Automatically Detect Early Signs of Illness in Senior Housing

Early illness detection and recognition of small changes in health conditions are essential for early interventions when treatment is the most effective and when prevention of dramatic changes are still possible. We propose to develop a prospective innovative technological approach to early illness detection and chronic disease management using inexpensive sensors embedded in the environment.

HCC: Elder-Centered Recognition Technology for the Assessment of Physical Function

Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia and the University of Washington have established a multidisciplinary team comprised of researchers in computer science and engineering, nursing, and medical informatics dedicated to developing and evaluating technology to keep older adults functioning at higher levels and living independently. We have leveraged ongoing research at a unique local eldercare facility (TigerPlace) to study vision-based recognition methods for multi-person environments designed to capture continuous and automated assessments of older adults’ physical function.

Automated Activity Analysis for Eldercare

Our objective is to explore new information technologies to assist the independent living of elderly people and enhance their quality of life at home, while utilizing the time and attention of caregivers and eldercare specialists in the highest efficiency.

Building Interdisciplinary Geriatric Health Care Research Centers Initiative

The overall objective of our RAND/Harford Interdisciplinary Geriatric Health Care Research Center is to promote interdisciplinary research with a special focus on development of innovative clinical and health services interventions for older adults. We will impart to junior faculty and graduate students the needed attitudes, knowledge, and skills for conducting relevant interdisciplinary research related.

Technology to Enhance Aging in Place at TigerPlace

The dream of older Americans is to remain as active and independent as possible for as long as possible. They want to age in place, not in institutions like nursing homes. Recently, enabling technology in the form of low cost sensors, computers, and communications systems has become available, which with supportive health care services makes the dream of aging in place a reality.

Technology Interventions for Elders with Mobility and Cognitive Impairments

Americans are living longer and more fulfilled lives, and they desire to live as independently as possible. But independent lifestyles come with risks. To address these issues, researchers are developing “smart home” technologies to help older adults remain independent at home while controlling costs. Smart homes enhance residents’ safety and monitor health conditions using sensors and other devices. Such technology can help keep older adults independent while controlling costs.
