Context-aware life-logging for persons with mild dementia
2009 (English)In: 2009 annual international conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society: EMBC 2009 ; Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, 3 - 6 September 2009, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2009, 6183-6186 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The demands of introducing technology to support independent living is increasing. This is true also for persons suffering from mild dementia who may have difficulties remembering important information, such as activities, numbers, names, objects, faces, and so on. This paper presents a context-aware life-logging system, called MemoryLane, which can support independent living and improve quality of life for persons with mild dementia. The system offers both real time support as well as possibilities to rehearse and recall activities for building episodic memory. This paper also presents a mobile client to be used in MemoryLane, as well as an evaluation of the importance of different data for the purpose of memory recollection.
