A recent systematic investigates the use of remote “sensing technology” to assess behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), and for monitoring people with dementia more generally. The broad categories of technology considered include (i) wearable sensors, (ii) non-wearable motion sensors and (iii) assistive technologies / smart home technologies.
The authors propose a framework for sustainable ethical innovation in the application of healthcare technology.
