Abstract

Wearable sensors are the most promising technology for the automatic, continuous and long-term evaluation in areas of functional capacity. In the SENDoc project, we test different kinds of wearable sensors and implement them into rehabilitation practice for the elderly. Wearable sensors can be integrated into both acute and chronic situations and may provide the necessary information for managing health disorders and rehabilitation, to both patients and healthcare personnel (Appelboom et al., 2014).
