    Computer-supported coordinated care uses technology to aid the network of people who support an elder living at home. CSCC supports improved communication among individuals and a balanced distribution of responsibilities to allow the elder to live at home despite increasing care needs. The problem of coordinating the care of elders living at home hasn't been well defined or explored. We focus on u... View full abstract»

    Two-thirds of the people who have lost their vision are over the age of 65. Rehabilitation strategies and assistive technologies must be designed to meet the changing needs of this older and aging population. At this age, they might also have a diminished interest in learning new skills and might find it difficult or impossible to learn braille. With peripheral neuropathy, they lose the sense of t...

    Although computing technology has made inroads into home environments, it has yet to instigate a major shift in the design of homes or home activities. The convergence of television and the Internet is lagging behind expectations, and the combination of desktop computers, entertainment consoles, televisions, and cell phones has yet to form a cohesive whole. One possible reason for this lag in prog... View full abstract»

    Falls are a major health hazard for the elderly and a major obstacle to independent living. The estimated incidence of falls for both institutionalized and independent persons aged over 75 is at least 30 percent per year. In the SIMBAD (Smart Inactivity Monitor using Array-Based Detectors) project, we've developed an intelligent fall detector based on a low-cost array of infrared detectors. A fiel...
