Abstract

Traditional healthcare environments are extremely complex and challenging to manage, as they are required to cope with an assortment of patient conditions under various circumstances with a wide range of resource constraints. Pervasive healthcare technologies seek to respond to a variety of these pressures by successfully integrating them within existing health care environments. This thematic issue focuses on the deployment of technologies at home which can have a positive impact on the health of our population, with a strong focus on technological developments aiming at increasing the health and wellbeing of those living at home from a variety of perspectives, for example, the collection and processing of ambient and spatial-activity datasets thought the usage of Body Area Network devices, the development and assessment of handheld mobile devices as part of the dementia screening process and finally the correlation and assessment of larger datasets through the development of data mining and simulation techniques
