Alzheimer Watcher

Alzheimer Watcher


“Alzheimer Watcher” is application that relays vital signs readings from an Alzheimer patient.

The readings are collected via sensors connected to an Arduino board. The board collects the readings, e.g. pulse rate, body temperature, and acceleration (via gyroscope sensor that helps in detecting patient falls). The board forwards the collected data to a smartphone via a USB OTG cable or Bluetooth connection.
The application alerts patient guardians/family via SMS (the receiver phone numbers application preferences) in case an issue is detected. Issues are determined by comparing the data collected against preset thresholds (through application preferences). In addition, the application checks the current patient location (via GPS coordinates) to determine if the patient has left the perimeter of the safe zone (also an application preference). Moreover, the collected data is logged on the mobile itself and in a web-database (address is an application preference) for trend reporting.

Note: This application requires an Arduino board to work in accordance to the protocol set in the application (readings are sent ASCII format comma separated).
