Assisted Living Systems for Elderly and Disabled People: A Short Review

  title={Assisted Living Systems for Elderly and Disabled People: A Short Review},
  author={Ivo Iliev and Ivan Dotsinsky},
The number of elderly people living alone in their homes is permanently growing in the whole western world. Because of the deterior ating capabilities to sense and interact with the environment, such as memory, eye sight, he aring and mobility, the ageing populations often live with significantly degraded life quality. Many also suffer from chronic diseases that require medical treatment and periodi cal examinations. Different Assisted Living Systems have been propose d to cope with the… 

Can Automated Homes be used as Assistants for Elderly?

The prime objective of this paper is to analyze different researches being done in Ambient Assisted Livings (AAL) used for home automation or building smart homes.

RUDO: A Home Ambient Intelligence System for Blind People

An ambient intelligence system for blind people which besides providing assistance in home environment also helps with various situations and roles in which blind people may find themselves involved and increases their independence and creates conditions that allow them to become fully involved.

A Smart Range Helping Cognitively-Impaired Persons Cooking

A new smart range prototype allowing monitoring and guiding a cognitively-impaired user in the activity of preparing a meal by exploiting load cells, heat sensors and electromagnetic contacts embedded in the range.

Overview of Policies, Guidelines, and Standards for Active Assisted Living Data Exchange: Thematic Analysis

The study showed that the base technology, standards, and policies necessary for the creation of AAL technology are not the primary problem causing disparity between existing and accessible technologies; instead nontechnical issues and integration between existing technologies present the most significant issue.

Ambient Assisted Living Healthcare Frameworks, Platforms, Standards, and Quality Attributes

It is found that more inter-organizational collaboration, user-centered studies, increased standardization efforts, and a focus on open systems is needed to achieve more interoperable and synergetic AAL solutions.

The results show that the 3 year transfer probability of the initial healthy elderly is the highest, and the mortality rate is also the lowest, and it can be found that the disability state transition probability measurement based on the data is more accurate than the model estimation.

Information and Technology Implementation Issues in AAL Solutions

This work is a revision of the current state of the art AAL4ALL solutions, presenting features, scenarios and projects, referring the limitations and the opportunities for the future developments of prototypes using high level information and technology in AAL environments.

An Approach to design Keyboard and Mouse assisting device for handicap users

The proposed LDR-based-matrix keyboard system sensor was sensitive enough to detect laser light which was tested on ten different users and shown promising accuracy; for future enhancement, the fabrication industry can fabricate LDR matrix during the fabrication process, to minimize the size of the system in order to save the power consumption.

Healthcare Sensing and Monitoring

This chapter presents an overview of many wearable devices of different types that have been proven in medical and home environments as being helpful in Quality of Life enhancement of elder adults.



Towards Ambient Assisted Shared Living for the Elderly

The novelty of the approach lies in including the relatives in the loop of support and – thus – avoids increased isolation usually fostered by a fully automated home.

Promises and Challenges of Ambient Assisted Living Systems

The current status of researches on AAL is reviewed, the promises and possible advantages of AAL are discussed, and the challenges must meet are indicated in order to develop practical and efficient AAL systems for elderly people.

Ambient Intelligence in Assisted Living: Enable Elderly People to Handle Future Interfaces

An Assisted Living Laboratory is presented that is used to train elderly people to handle modern interfaces for Assisted living and evaluate the usability and suitability of these interfaces in specific situations, e.g., emergency cases.

This paper reports on initial stages of a case study of building a consortium to undertake research into advanced technologies and telecommunications that support the notion of an assisted care

Visions and realities: developing 'smart' homes for seniors in Sweden

The smart home concept with its vision of embedding technology in houses or apartments gained much interest during the end of the 20th and the beginning of 21st century. Although the vision remains,

Sensor systems for monitoring functional status in assisted living facility residents.

An expert review of data displays for a sensor system used to monitor functional abilities in older adults indicates that flexibility and efficiency of use, help and documentation, navigation, and skills were not well developed.

Perceived usefulness among elderly people: Experiences and lessons learned during the evaluation of a wrist device

The evaluation of end user acceptance of a wrist device, designed to monitor vital signs and to detect adverse situations, and, if necessary, to alert emergency services to the wearers need, is presented.

Designing a Pervasive Healthcare Assistive Environment for the Elderly

The main goal of this paper is to present the main design issues of a pervasive healthcare assistive environment, specially designed for the elderly, that integrates wheelchairs and walkers, as smart objects, and situated displays.
