Technology for successful aging shown at White House conference

t systems to use the information for health coaching, to encourage physical and mental exercise, and for delivery of health care. The future success of this technology is based on adapting to each individual's situation.

The technology research is done within ORCATECH's Point of Care Laboratory. The Point of Care Laboratory, directed by Misha Pavel, Ph.D., professor of biomedical engineering at the OGI School of Science and Engineering, is located at OHSU's West Campus in Hillsboro. Scientists there are creating unique artificial intelligence algorithms that combine information from a variety of sensors and tracking devices placed throughout the homes of seniors, to assess situations in which mobility or cognition problems may be occurring, and to provide intervention and health coaching to seniors to assure their health care needs are being met. "Our goal is to allow people to live longer, healthier and higher quality lives in their own homes," Pavel said.

ORCATECH has been successful at bringing together a multidisciplinary team of researchers, care providers, industrial partners and elders themselves in working on technical and social solutions for enabling seniors to maintain their independence and quality of life as they age. ORCATECH investigators from OHSU, together with several of their industrial partners, are showing examples of their integrated monitoring system at the 2005 White House Conference on Aging in Washington, D.C., this week through Wednesday. The intent of the once-a-decade event is to make policy recommendations on aging to the president and Congress, and to assist the public and private sectors in promoting dignity, health, independence and economic security of current and future generations of older persons.

The OHSU exhibit will showcase intelligent walkers and canes that detect balance changes and sound alerts or signals to encourage appropriate use, as well as an integrated system using the MedTracker device. O
