  • attitudes and use of communication, information, entertainment and health technologiesPsychosocial well-beingPhysical health
  • Simulated Virtual EnvironmentCAVE = Cave Automatic Virtual Environment4 Back projected 3D screens, and head tracking technology which allows you to walk around and look behind objects.Can create realistic rooms or objects or allow you to visualise and interact with massive datasets.
  • Like in the movie minority report or Iron man 2
  • But the jewel in the crown is great northern haven
  • Ambient Assisted Living brings together:Stand alone assisted living devices (grab rails)Smart Home technology (turn on lights when you get out of bed)And Telehealth Devices (GP personal health record recording device)
  • The architectural “adaptable home model”, allows for the addition of technology as the older person requires it. Such as anchors for grab rails, or hoistsOr extensive wiring for sensors or telehealth devices
  • Adjustable cabinets and appliances to allow universal access
  • The purpose of the sensors is two fold:Allow monitoring of residents in the homes today,But also facilitate the research to allow us understand how people live their lives so that we can spot abnormal behaviour
  • McElwaine SMART, 24 monitoring of alarmsStart a voice conversation on a speakerCall appropriate relative or service (Cluid)Phone line required – Broadband free!

  • 2240 sensors or actuators
  • Modeling the activities of daily living will hopefully allows us to recognise sudden events such as falls but also more gradual decline such as cognitive decline.Questions hoping to answer include:“what are the key health indicators from that can be measured by activities of daily living”“Can we predict cognitive decline from movement dynamics”“what is the minimum set of sensors required to get good recognition of activities of daily living”

  • We need a way of feeding back information we learn about the residents to the residents, to the residents. While building this internet connected device that addressed universal design constraints, why not help bridge the digital divide but giving access to additional services on the device, such as weather, smart home control, internet shopping or local news.
  • 25% of HD TVs sold so far this year in the US are internet enabled. TV’s and TV remotes are familiar technology for older people
  • Always on, allows for casual interaction, removes the computer requirement of keyboard and mouse, which can present difficulties for novice users.

  • Middleware: connecting sensors to services widely adopted comply with standardsAlgorithms, encapsulate, know how / IP, data models

    • 1. Older adults' use and attitudes towards technology And the Netwell / CASALA Living Labs
      Ann O’Hanlon
      Brian O’Mullane
    • 2. Changing demographic profile ..
    • 3. Study 1:“adults’ attitudes and use of technology”Survey (n=1000)
    • 4. Use and attitudes to technology (n=168)
    • 5. Entertainment technologies
      “I wouldn’t see any one from one end of the week to the other. (Nods to TV) .. that’s my only company, other than the day trips” (85M)
      “The TV is just marvellous. Gives you a lift you know when you see what other people are doing” (77F)
    • 6. Information Communication Technologies
      The computer … it’s pure foreign to me. And if ever I am talking to anybody that I was at school with, we are all the same. … but I am going to learn. I have to learn (70F)
      You’ve got to move with the times now haven’t you (learning computers)? You can’t go back to living in the dark ages! (65F)
      My family are all abroad ... Id be lost without skype (58M)
    • 7. Health Technology
      “It is great to think that there’s somebody else at the other end of the phone if there was an emergency because you know what it’s like with doctors and hospitals, you have to wait your turn. In that respect, I think it’s marvellous” (65F).
      “Last week my blood pressure was low and it told me to contact the nurse but I left it… So the second day it was up a bit but that night the nurse rang me. She happened to phone me before I had time to phone her. … I intended to ring up (nurse) to tell her what happened … but she got me first. That was good” (66M)

      • There is an urgent need to bring quality of life and health to increased years.
      • 36. Technology has the potential to
      inform about physical health and wellness
      connect people to others and so maintain relationships and friendships
      add quality of life and enjoyment to later years
      • Much insights from research
      • 37. Study 1 offers insights at a population level.
