AGE-WELL research featured in Globe and Mail Report on Business

Today’s Globe and Mail features an interview with Alex Mihailidis, Scientific Director of AGE-WELL NCE.

From computer-based prompting systems to sensors mounted in the home, Dr. Mihailidis describes an array of ‘intelligent’ systems his team is developing to help older people and those with cognitive impairment.

“One of his main goals is to ensure that people can continue to live and function in their home as they get older, and using sensors to reveal and interpret patterns of behaviour are some of the tools that he and his team use to capture that,” writes reporter Paul Attfield.
