Pervasive home care systems are needed to overcome the problems of an aging population in the western world. An overview of ongoing research at the Pervasive Healthcare Lab, Engineering College of Aarhus on this subject is given, presenting an infrastructure design connecting the various software and hardware projects currently being researched. The primary goal is the design of an open and easily extendible platform for existing and new home care products from multiple vendors. This includes physiological sensors as well as end-user applications, preferably free of vendor lock-in issues. The support of non-professional users, including relatives and neighbors is also a discussed.
