Telegerontology? and Mobile Robot Companion

Telegerontology? and Mobile Robot Companion

  • 6

Technological progress and changes in society, together with an increasingly ageing population, especially in developed countries, have demanded solutions to the problems linked to this aging and the increasing number of elderly people. We describe two assistive systems being currently developed and improved; the first one `Telegerontology?” is a gerontological resource that through the Internet, facilitates different functionalities at home or in institutions such as physical and cognitive intervention, and providing support to professionals. The second one `CompanionAble” consists of an integrated system Smart-home and intelligent robot to give support to the elderly with mild cognitive impairment and their caregivers. The system, which can move about in the home, incorporates functionalities such as an application of cognitive stimulation, an event agenda and a video-conference system. In conclusion, we consider that though the evolution of new technologies for the support of elderly and/or disabled people has experienced a great advance in the last years, and despite new future system as Telegerontology? or CompanionAble, human being support is still necessary for achieving their objectives. This fact is very positive because we ensure the presence of a health professional behind each patient.
