About the Project

Sensors can measure mobility, strength, balance, and also wellbeing, exercise; with potential to support independent living. The Smart sENsor Devices fOr rehabilitation and Connected health (SENDoc) project will introduce the use of wearable sensor systems in ageing communities in northern remote areas. SENDoc will assess sensor technical, clinical and social acceptability and their impact on patients, on health and care delivery, and on rural communities.

Projected key outcomes

  • to evaluate the use of wearable sensor systems in ageing communities in northern remote areas; measure impact on health, test technical and social acceptability, and test the functionality in cold climate conditions
  • use sensors to measure mobility, strength and balance, in order to support independent living in rural communities
  • focus on changing existing rehabilitation programmes
  • transfer research and development in wearable systems and apply connected healthcare concepts
  • create platforms where data and experiences can be shared and supported, capture data through innovative sensor wearable software systems
