Detection of activity pattern changes among elderly with 3D camera based technology

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper

Samenvatting

This paper provides an overview of the medical scales which are currently in practice at the geriatrics departmentof the hospital for assessing independence and mobility of elderly patients. Several shortcomings and issues relatedto the scales are identified.
