ALAMEDA will provide a comprehensive, multi-sensor monitoring solution for individuals with brain disorders, deploying a great variety of sensors to monitor their physiological status, overall health and lifestyle aspects. The heterogeneous sensor data will be integrated in an intelligent manner, resulting in a comprehensive picture of the person’s current status and its evolution over time, allowing the healthcare professionals to determine the best care approach in each case. Each sensing modality will be analyzed separately, and their results will be integrated in a semantically meaningful manner, in line with user requirements dictated by healthcare professionals, the informal caregivers, as well as the patients themselves.
Their daily activities in terms of motor function will be monitored by wearables, while both they and their caregivers will provide input about their fluctuating condition; input from caregivers will be especially important in cases in which the patients themselves do not have a complete realization of their condition, for example during their cognitive fluctuations, or when they manifest dyskinesias, of which they may not be aware.
