MIND – smart glasses for elderly
Smart Glasses can play an important role in addressing common problems for the elderly, particularly in regard to disorders that negatively impact mobility and independence. The most important disorders for which Smart Glasses can play an important role are Parkinson’s disease and visual impairment. The project partners combine the use of Smart Glasses with other sensors and movement support to help the visually impaired and patients with Parkinson’s in their daily life. Tasks such as movement and posture support, localization, object or person recognition, memory support and other cognitive tasks can be alleviated with the use of Smart Glasses. This improves patients’ quality of life and could reduce other complications and decrease the need for specialist care and hospitalization.
