EMERGE - Emergency Monitoring and Prevention

Printer-friendly versionSend by email
Name: 
Emergency Monitoring and Prevention
Acronym: 
EMERGE

Delayed calls of emergency medical services (e.g. in case of physical or mental disorders resulting from strokes or falls) lead to increased hospitalisation and movement of elderly people into nursing homes. This decreases their quality of life unnecessarily and causes considerable costs. Due to demographical changes in Europe, this situation is expected to get worse in the future. This problem is addressed in EMERGE by supporting elderly people with innovative emergency monitoring and prevention. Humans are bio-psycho-social beings, whose character is to follow typical behaviour. Especially elderly people have this character. The innovation is to algorithm this behaviour by a holistic approach in order to detect deviations from typical behaviour patterns and to reason on acute disorders in their health condition in case of strokes, falls or similar emergencies.
