Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia that affects a large segment of the older population and, due to aging, its prevalence will substantially increase in the next decades. This paper describes an experiment of application of remote monitoring technologies for the collection of data to detect the onset of crises in patients affected by Alzheimer's in an Italian village dedicated to the treatment of the Alzheimer's disease. Furthermore, the paper details the design concept of Eclipse, a smart wearable that compensates for the current lack of Alzheimer's specific wearables on the market.
