Stroke is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States. Every year, approximately 800,000 people experience a new or recurrent stroke. Due to advances in acute neurological care, nearly 85% survive and many live with the long-term chronic effects on motor and cognitive function. After initial recovery and rehabilitation, life for people […]
Sensing technologies hold enormous potential for detecting and tracking health changes that can dramatically affect the aging experience. Embedded health assessment can improve management of chronic or acute conditions, and thus, improve quality of life. Problems in chronic disease management are often the cause of losing independence for aging Americans.
