Wireless telesurveillance system for detecting dementia

June 9th, 2011 No comments

A new article on my work with Drs. Kearns, Fozard, and Nams on using RFID and fractal dimension to monitor patients in assisted living facilities is now online and due to be published in Gerontechnology, the journal of the International Society for Gerontechnology, shortly. You can also find a pre-print copy of the article in the Publications section of this website. In this article we show that fractal dimension generated using my RTFPA algorithm was superior to the MMSE (Mini Mental State Exam) as a classifier for discriminating between patients with and without (a diagnosed case of) dementia.
