Using data of sensor technologies to improve safety and wellbeing of people with dementia
The aim of this PhD is to appraise the use of an acoustic monitoring system (either as standalone or in combination with other systems) and its effectiveness in preventing night-time falls and explore the opportunity for machine learning of the system within a residential care home for people with dementia. Some data will already be available for analysis, but other data will need to be collected during the PhD.
