Sleep monitor may help Alzheimers patients

An innovative system that remotely monitors sleep patterns in people diagnosed with early-stage dementia may lead to improvements in sleep quality, comfort and general care of patients, it has been revealed this week. The PAViS allows care workers to analyse sleep patterns and profiles of patients in their own home without intrusion, thanks to a complex infrared sensor system. With such an insight into sleeping behaviour, medical professionals are able to provide a more personalised care and support programme, as well as having the information to determine specific traits of patients’ conditions.

Sleep problems are a distressing element of Alzheimer’s disease, contributing to an overall lowering of cognitive awareness and general wellbeing.

The potential of PAViS was described by Huiru Zheng from the University of Ulster and reported in the International Journal of Computers in Healthcare.
