– Dementia Ambient Care: Multi-Sensing Monitoring for Intelligent Remote Management and Decision Support

Dem@Care is a FP7-ICT-2011.5.1 IP European project (Personal Health Systems) which has started on November 1st 2011 and will end in 2015 (48 months). This project addresses Challenge 5: Digital ICT for Health, Ageing Well, Inclusion and Governance.

The objective of Dem@Care is the development of a complete system providing personal health services to persons with dementia, as well as medical professionals, by using a multitude of sensors, for context-aware, multiparametric monitoring of lifestyle, ambient enivronment, and health parameters. Multisensor data analysis, combined with intelligent decision making mechanisms, will allow an accurate representation of the person’s current status and will provide the appropriate feedback, both to the person and the associated medical professionals.

Multi-parametric monitoring of daily activities, lifestyle, behaviour, in combination with medical data, can provide clinicians with a comprehensive image of the person’s condition and its progression, without their being physically present, allowing remote care of their condition. There will be several pilots in France, Ireland and Sweden.

The prime partner is the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (G) and other partners are: INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, University de Bordeaux 1, Cassidian, Nice Hospital, LinkCareServices (FR), Lulea Tekniska Universitet (SE), Dublin City University (IE), IBM Israel (IL), Philips (NL) and Vistek ISRA Vision (TR).
