Forget-me-Not Series - Dementia: using technology to facilitate aging in place

Dr. Frank Knoefel talks about The Bruyère Memory Program and the potential of “smart” sensors to identify changes in how people move and think as they get older, to learn patterns and intervene, if needed.

Dr. Frank Knoefel is a Physician at the Bruyère Memory Program in Ottawa and Senior Investigator at the Bruyère Research Institute.  His research interests are focused on the use of sensors to facilitate Aging in Place.  After spending many years working on bed-based sensors to monitor physical well-being, such as transfers out of bed and breathing, Frank’s work is now focused more on cognition.
