Prototype - Context aware guide

The third prototype to be tested is a context aware guide. The idea is to help people with momentary disorientation either find their way back home or stay calm and safe until someone can pick them up. The prototype consists of two parts, an emergency button with which the person with dementia can call for help, and an automatically generated 'conversation script' for the caller.

Prototype - Cooperative Day Planner

Our first prototype is a cooperative day planner. The idea is to provide people with dementia and their care personnel or family with a means to discuss and communicate about the day's structure, preferably in the morning, and to reflect about upcoming plans. This reflection might serve to activate the patient's memory and form emotional connections with certain to-dos and hence heighten commitment for daily chores.
