Title
(EN) A REMOTE MONITORING SYSTEM FOR ALZHEIMER PATIENTS
(FR) SYSTEME DE TELESURVEILLANCE POUR PATIENTS SOUFFRANT DE LA MALADIE D'ALZHEIMER
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed is a device which helps caregivers of demented patients, such as persons suffering from Alzheimer's disease, monitor and safeguard the wellbeing of the patients. The device, which is attached to the wrist or the leg of the patients, monitors the movement and behavior of the patient and informs the caregivers whenever unexpected or alarming incidences occur. The device may identify if the patient has fallen, wondered off or is inactive for long periods of time. The device records and learns the patterns of daily behavior of the patient in relation to which it may identify unexpected occurrences. The device is equipped with sensors which enable it to monitor the location, behavior and condition of the patient. Additionally, the device may be programmed to identify particular behaviors as alarming. Selectively activating its sensors and communication interface, the device is especially equipped to operate on low battery consumption.

Cette invention concerne un dispositif qui aide le personnel soignant de malades atteints de démence, tels que des personnes souffrant de la maladie d'Alzheimer, à surveiller les patients et à veiller à leur bien être. Ce dispositif, qui se fixe au poignet ou à la jambe du patient, permet de surveiller les déplacements et le comportement dudit patient et d'informer le personnel soignant d'incidents imprévus ou alarmants. Le dispositif permet de savoir si le patient a fait une chute, s'est échappé ou bien reste inactif pendant des périodes prolongées. Le dispositif enregistre et apprend à reconnaître des schémas de comportement quotidien et, partant, à repérer des événements imprévus. Il est équipé de capteurs qui lui permettent de surveiller la position, le comportement et l'état du patient. De plus, il peut être programmé pour identifier des comportements jugés alarmants. Parce qu'il sollicite sélectivement ses capteurs et son interface, ce dispositif ne consomme que peu d'énergie batterie.
