Research Institution
More soldiers are surviving battle injuries than ever before. However, many of the survivors suffer traumatic brain injuries, post traumatic stress disorder. These soldiers require care beyond the acute care provided by the hospitals. As they transition from acute care into extended care and independent living conditions, they need assistance and supervision to facilitate rehabilitation from injury, impairment or disability. This proposal describes a system capable of delivering such assistance and remote care while addressing the requirements for self health maintenance, safety and security, medical treatment (including therapy and rehabilitation) and social needs. The proposed system consists of a mesh network of fixed and wearable wireless type devices placed into the dwelling of the patient. The sensor network allows tracking the patient’s movement, to ascertain the basic health of the patient, to establish performance of certain activities and to provide assistance through intelligent prompting. Data gathered by the sensors is transmitted wirelessly to an in-home cognitive server and processed to provide an adaptive level of assistance to the patient and alerting of caregivers. A PDA Cellular Phone gateway will allow the patient to leave the dwelling and still maintain connection to the POC and the remote monitoring stations.
