Digital technologies for healthcare. Theme D: Sensors, wearable devices, intelligent networks and smart homecare for health
This paper presents the activities of the research group in sensors, wearable devices, intelligent networks and smart homecare for health inside the GdR STIC-Santé. Four research fields are covered: sensors, clothing, housing and networks, to allow better monitoring of health parameters and quality of life. Several events were organized or co-organized during the period 2011–2102. They were devoted to the issue of the autonomy of people with a particular focus on the needs and expectations and also the embedded technologies developed to enable monitoring of health parameters and activities in their living environment. Future projects will try to complete the knowledge of the current work on frailty and the risks incurred, in particular falls, and identify opportunities to share the achievements of the research teams to respond to National or European projects calls.
