SmartMind: Activity tracking and monitoring for patients with Alzheimer’s disease
© 2015 IEEE. In this paper, we introduce SmartMind, an activity tracking and monitoring system to help Alzheimer's diseases (AD) patients to live independently within their living rooms while providing emergent help and support when necessary. Allowing AD patients to handle their daily activities not only can release some of the burdens on their families and caregivers, but also is highly important to help them regain confidence towards a healthy life and reduce the degeneration rates of their memories. The daily activities of a patient captured from Smart Mind can also serve as important indicators to describe his/her normal living habit (NLH). By checking with NLH, the patient's current health status can be estimated on a daily basis.
