Abstract [en]

The development of a wearable prototype systems after studies conducted in a nursing home care is discussed. The specific problems encountered by medical workers at nursing homes includes communication, information dissemination, access to patient charts and organizational issues. The failure of which may cause stress, discomfort, and dissatisfaction among caretakers and patients as well as possible detrimental health consequences for patients. A Wizard of Oz experiments was used to retrieve information, process interrupting phone calls, to simplify communication with others, and to minimize the interaction needed with the wearable computer.
