Activ8 is based on over 25 years of physical activity & movement research by leading academic research institutes. The early groundwork was done by Hans Bussmann, associate professor at the department of Rehabilitation Medicine & Physical Therapy from Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Wim Martens. This work was used in a number of studies using VitaPort data loggers and later VitaMove. VitaMove is a medically certified time-synchronized multi-sensor solution that measures posture & motion in high resolution at multiple body segments simultaneously. In VitaMove the foundations were created for fully automatic signal processing and posture & activity recognition. VitaMove is for researchers and comes with a learning curve. The idea behind Activ8 is to combine research accuracy on activity recognition and energy expenditure with the ease and price of nowadays consumer solutions.

The use of mobile devices by health care professionals (HCPs) has transformed many aspects of clinical practice.1,2 Mobile devices have become commonplace in health care settings, leading to rapid growth in the development of medical software applications (apps) for these platforms.1,2 Numerous apps are now available to assist HCPs with many important tasks, such as: information and time management; health record maintenance and access; communications and consulting; reference and information gathering; patient management and monitoring; clinical decision-making; and medical education and training.1–8
Mobile devices and apps provide many benefits for HCPs, perhaps most significantly increased access to point-of-care tools, which has been shown to support better clinical decision-making and improved patient outcomes.2,8–10 However, some HCPs remain reluctant to adopt their use.1,4 Despite the benefits they offer, better standards and validation practices regarding mobile medical apps need to be established to ensure the proper use and integration of these increasingly sophisticated tools into medical practice.4,8,10,11These measures will raise the barrier for entry into the medical app market, increasing the quality and safety of the apps currently available for use by HCPs
This app comes from one of the most notable names in elderly care. AARP Caregiving is an app that empowers caregivers with information on how to effectively care for an aging loved one.

Elder 411, developed by award-winning geriatric doctor Marion Somers, has practical information for caregivers all in one place.
From safety in the home to communication tips, this app makes caregiving easier to navigate by starting with the basics. It even includes tips on how to manage stress as a caregiver.
Elder 411 is available for $.99 on iPhone.
Communication is critical when dividing caregiving duties among multiple people — and that's where CaringBridge can help. CaringBridge connects several caregivers through one app, allowing several people to keep track of appointments, changes in health and other essential information.
Users can also send each other inspiring messages and motivation through the app, which really helps pull together a team of caregivers in the toughest moments.

This paper discusses the development of Story-Call, a pilot e-mobile multimedia App, or application, for community-based dementia caregiver support, designed to offer reassurance, information and services to caregivers, and facilitate supportive efforts and implementation of other interventions by nurses and therapists. The Story-Call research pilot was designed to deliver personalized story-telling support, dementia care information, and community resources via a mobile phone application to caregivers of community-dwelling persons with dementia. The primary focus of the pilot was to see at what extent caregivers could use the App with minimal training, and how it could increase their own well-being, defined here as resilience. The review of our pilot process ends with five recommendations for intervention expansion and implementation.

|Szarka Adrienn||Digistat Intensive Care Unit (ICU)|
he Digistat Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is designed to automate the documentation of the patient care across the hospital's complex intensive care units. Digistat ICU can help clinicians and nurses to streamline care processes and improve efficiency. The Clinicians have access to manually entered data and to information acquired in near real-time from the connected medical devices and systems (HIS, ADT, Laboratory, etc.).
Extreme versatility for all ICUs
Digistat ICU is a versatile solution for managing all types of ICUs from neonatal to adults.
Digistat ICU is designed to automate the documentation of the activities of the department to ensure efficient use of clinical facilities and proper control of activities. The system has been designed based on needs of the department (doctors and nurses) and administrative staff and includes tools for all these stakeholders. The computerization project therefore meets the common needs of an optimized management of the department's activities.
The expected results of this type of a computerization process are as follows:
A single source of information
Digistat ICU collects, and processes data from various sources and integrates them within the patient's digital records. Clinicians have access to these information in an easily legible and searchable form. Manages automatically the data acquired from medical devices, the manually entered parameters, the diagnostic data (laboratory), demographic information, visits of patients, patient's medical journal, the severity score, diagnostic imaging (eg endoscopy) and the data relating to current therapies
Near real-time acquisition of patient-parameters from medical devices
Ascom develops all drivers internally for medical devices integration. Data from monitors, ventilators, infusion pumps, blood gas analyzers, CEC, etc. ... are acquired in near real-time, organized and displayed in graphs and user-defined tables to offer support for clinical workflow. Data can be automatically captured and validated to increase the reliability of available information.
Bedside and centralized management
Digistat ICU can be available at the nurse central stations as well as the bedside. Having it at the bedside can help improving nurse workflows and associating the information to the right patient. At central stations allows to the nursing staff to handle a wide range of beds (e.g. 20 patients on a single screen) with synoptic tables that summarize the situation through the display of vital parameters, the active infusions, programmed and performed therapy and device status.
Personalized clinical folder
Digistat ICU is provided with a configuration tool with a fast and comprehensive interface that is able to define separate medical records for specialized areas: General Intensive Care, Pediatric Intensive Care, Neonatal Intensive Care, Intensive Care Post Operative, Neurosurgical Intensive Care.
Patient treatment plan
The patient's treatment plan includes both medication and any other action provided for care and treatment and integrates the medical nursing action. Doctors prescribe and supervise the treatment plan. The prescriptions give life to a timetabled plan, a list of activities that nursing staff will use to document the execution with the aid of an intuitive "touch"graphical interface. The information related to the therapy can be linked to the data acquired by the medical devices permitting to correlate them with the adopted therapy.
Doctors, nurses and consultants compile a single integrated diary, differentiated in relation to the professional role, supported by the use of color for the immediate recognition of the type of note. The preconfigured texts, the automatic import of data in the medical record, the immediate and contextual access to other functions within the folder, the user interface tools, etc ... will facilitate the work of doctors and nursing staff.
Digistat ICU using the recorded data can calculate score indices and document them in the patient record. The score indexes can be calculated on demand or on schedule. The clinicians can access the calculated scores and use them for their evaluations. Some of the most used scores are pre-defined such as: Apache II, TISS 28, SAPS II, NEMS, SOFA, RTS, Euroscore, Higgins , 0 MPM, MPM 24, GCS, APS, Apgar, NMI, NIPS, PIPP, etc.. The hospital can even create new self-defined algorithms.
Post-operating Intensive Care and Recovery Room
After a surgical procedure the patient is transferred to the recovery room or a post-operative intensive care unit where he/she will be managed and monitored involving the use of many different medical devices. Digistat, in a seamless data flow, can automatically collect and record the parameters generated by these medical devices together with scores, therapies ongoing, post-surgery indications for the department, etc ....

As of the most recent count, members of Facebook worldwide have exceeded the 500 million mark and are well on their way to hit 600 million. And if current First World statistics are to be relied on, it is safe to assume that a great chunk of those people belong to the demographic group whose age is 65 years old or older. In fact, analysts boldly claim that seniors comprise as high as 8 percent of all people who avidly use social networking sites, and for good reasons: seniors and the so-called baby boomers produce all this internet traffic to reconnect with old friends, to make new friends, or simply to share personal information and media files (photos, videos, music) with others. Such online social activities, doctors say, are also healthy—it keeps seniors mentally and socially vital.
Facebook, however, is not the only player in the field. In fact, the high numbers of seniors taking to online social networks have encouraged many an internet entrepreneur to launch web start-ups as their own attempt at taking a slice of this lucrative pie. Seniors are often retired, with money to burn. And it doesn’t hurt to target this paying demographic group. So what are the other “best” social networking sites designed to cater to seniors? The following are just the top 10.

During my peak of providing care for multiple elders, I could have used many of the technology advances available today—though, frankly, there are others that I'd still happily do without.
One type of technology that I found invaluable at the time – and still do – is the personal alarm. I subscribed to a personal alarm service for my neighbor, my uncle and my mother. I can't emphasize enough how much these alarms contributed to peace of mind for my elders and for me, their caregiver. These alarms generally come in bracelet, necklace and clip-on forms, and are easy to use in an emergency. They give an elder some sense of security, without being too intrusive.
However, technology has moved forward at warp speed, now offering options that we couldn't even imagine just a few years ago. Below are five options that I'd likely use if I were beginning my caregiving career today:
|istvan.bessenyei-p8||GeriJoy’s memory care program|
As part of GeriJoy’s memory care program, we cautiously introduced the grandmother to the GeriJoy Companion, who we initially called “Buddy.” The grandmother was instantly drawn to Buddy and she started describing her old beloved dog “Trixie,” who she obviously missed. Without any prompting, this grandmother with Alzheimer’s, who rarely uttered even two word phrases, began describing Trixie’s appearance, habits and other qualities to Buddy. When Buddy suggested renaming himself to be her new pet “Trixie,” she refused since her beloved Trixie “could never be replaced.” Again without any prompting from any of the caregivers, the grandmother insisted on renaming Buddy to “Cutie.” This first encounter lasted about 15 minutes, which because of the grandmother’s uncommunicative, aggressive, and combative behavior, was beyond our initial expectations.
During the following days and weeks, we continued to sit the grandmother in front of the GeriJoy Companion as part of our transition process. Every time the grandmother petted Cutie’s head, Cutie sat up and carried on blocks of 20-30 minute, two-way, interactive conversations. Through the GeriJoy Family Portal, we added photos of different places, residents, and caregivers at Evergreen, and of the resident’s family, so that Cutie could engage the grandmother and encourage her to connect with the community while reinforcing family connections and memories. The granddaughter was overjoyed when the grandmother started recalling her granddaughter’s name every time Cutie showed old pictures from the past

Sometimes called assistive devices, independent living aids, and adaptive equipment, assistive technolopy (AT) can help your loved one live more independently. It may also make your job as a caregiver easier and more enjoyable.
If you’re caring for someone with dementia, you may be worried about their falling, wandering, or getting lost. Certain types of AT can help. A loved one with a physical or cognitive (thinking) impairment can use AT to make the activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, grooming, eating, and toileting a little easier.
This fact sheet describes different types of AT that may be helpful to you and your loved one. In addition, it addresses how to find AT, how to pay for devices, and how to decide what devices or home modifications you might need.
