  • This system must be designed so that the senior can be as active or inactive in the system as possible. The in-home technology must be designed so that a person with no computer or technological experience will be able to understand and use the system. This system must promote active participation between doctors, family members, and those receiving the system.
  • The Xbox Kinect uses a technology similar to TOF (Time-of Flight) an encoded light signal is emitted, and the distortion of the signal as it bounces off of objects allows the system to create a map of the room. It can monitor the full-body motions of up to two people and cost $199.
  • This remote interface would also be developed for mobile devices (such as android and ios devices) , so the information is accessible anywhere.
  • For seniors that live in their own home, dropping or losing a pill is a common occurrence. Unfortunately, some seniors may forget whether or not they have taken a pill, which can lead to double-dosing and accidental overdose. This can be prevented by a simple request system. The pill dispenser can be programmed to require permission before dispensing extra pills. If a senior presses the button to receive and extra pill, the system will send a notification to the qualified family member, This person can simply accept of reject the request, or contact the senior for more information.
