Objectives

The success criteria for the project phase are:

  • To demonstrate that people with dementia can make daily choices in their activity program by using a ICT tool that provides them with a menu to choose from.
  • To demonstrate that people with dementia become more active after being exposed to audiovisual stimulation of mirrorneurons in the brain.
  • To demonstrate that people with dementia can be guided towards activities they have chosen by using ICT for intuitive guiding with lights, projection of images or colour.
  • To demonstrate that giving them feedback through ICT about their progress motivates them to stay active.
  • To demonstrate that ICT can be a tool for informal carers to support their patient/family member in staying in control of their life.
  • To demonstrate that (changes in) symptoms of demential behaviour in movements of people can be assessed by ICT and form a basis for early intervention.
  • To demonstrate that people with dementia and their carers experience an improved quality of life when using our ICT solutions.
  • To demonstrate that people with dementia receiving the ICT support from this project show improvement in cognitive skills or at least show less deterioration in the development of their dementia than a control group.
  • To demonstrate that people with dementia using our ICT solutions will use less medication for controlling restlessness and/or anxiety than patients in a control group.
  • To demonstrate that workers in health care experience a higher work satisfaction when using our ICT solutions to communicate and work with patients and informal carers.
  • To assess that the perspective cost/benefit ratio of the foreseen industrial solutions are in line with the expectation of the different class of users/customers
