We intend to relieve the daily work at care-centers, allowing medical workers to focus on the patients and their needs. This goal can be achieved by employing technology that automate and simplify tasks previously requiring tedious interventions, giving more time for the important human to human interaction. For any technology to become accepted by the medical workers, we must ensure that it is highly natural and unobtrusive, without interfering with their caregiving. By studying the medical workers’ daily work, we can draw conclusions on what problems they encounter, allowing us to develop prototypes which can be deployed and used at the care-centers. In doing this, we can proceed to study the acceptance and usability of our proposed solution, and see whether and how it solves the problem. In this position paper, we present our current and future research in wearable and pervasive health-care.
