Addressing challenges in the care of the elderly in a student project
Haaga-Helia’s students developed a completely new kind of system for monitoring the activity of the elderly. Named Carefree, the system is a tool for the person’s family members to ensure that the person can cope in their daily life. The system produces a graph analysis of the elderly person’s daily activities, creates graphs of the essential data and sends an alarm to the person’s family members in critical situations. At Haaga-Helia, the development of the system began in September 2018 and the system was completed in December 2018.
