A unique radar sensor system to monitor movement and vital signs for elderly people in care homes

Project description

Monitoring the vital sounds of the elderly

The burden of chronic disease in Europe is on the rise and is mainly associated with the population ageing. Chronic diseases impose a huge financial burden on healthcare systems. The effective monitoring of the vital signs of the elderly is crucial. With this in mind, researchers are developing innovative and minimally invasive devices that can monitor elderly vital signs in care facilities. The EU-funded RayVS1 project will develop a single radar sensor that can detect the position, movement (fall detection), heart and respiration rate of persons in care facilities without any physical interaction with the user. The sensor provides real-time and customised alerts to caregivers and medical professionals while protecting users’ personal data.
