Americans may be warming up to the idea of using unmanned aerial vehicles — or drones — to deliver Amazon packages or take pictures of unreachable places like remote mountain ranges or hurricane-decimated landscapes.

But what about using indoor drones to help older people get their hands on a bottle of medicine that’s in another room?
Sound like an outlandish idea? Naira Hovakimyan, a roboticist at the University of Illinois, isn’t laughing.

Hovakimyan recently received a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to explore the possibility of using small drones to perform simple household chores.

NSF picked the right person.

Hovakimyan recently told The New York Times that she believes drones will become an everyday fixture — as ubiquitous as cell phones — in the homes of older people. Within a decade or two, she says, indoor drones will be reaching under the table to grab an object, cleaning chandeliers, and weeding the lawn.

New facial recognition technology developed in Australia will help medical staff manage the pain of dementia patients who struggle to communicate.
The PainChek app runs on smartphones or tablets and uses artificial intelligence to analyse facial expressions to assess pain levels.
The software captures the information it needs in just three seconds and uses standardised pain scales but can be tailored to include patient-specific information such as medication.

 

AgeingFit is delighted to host the IGAM congress for two half-days during the 2018 edition.
The congress theme will focus on “What’s new in geriatrics and gerontology ? News from the sector” and will take the form of conferences, round tables and posters.

More information soon.
