More Details

The efficacy of the Activlink system offering localization information to improve caregiver will be evaluated in two studies. Study 2a will use the insole system with dementia patients residing in skilled or memory care. Data regarding caregiving activity will be collected from their paid professional care providers. Study 2b will use participant localization data collected on 80 independently dwelling mild dementia patients. In this case data will be collected from their unpaid family caregivers. Both studies will result in evaluating the efficacy of the WiFi-based insole to provide caregivers with augmented patient awareness, helping to improve their immediate quality of life by reducing their direct burden of continuous oversight of their person in care.
