“Ambient Assistance for Recovery” (AA4R) is a project of the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg which purpose it is to develop a medical system that monitors patients staying at home. The idea is that the known environment will have a positive influence on the patients recovery. To minimize the risk of staying away from the hospital and to give further information about the patient's health to the responsible medical staff, a system is being developed that monitors the patient's recovery and sends those data to a medical server for further processing. (e.g. review by a doctor)
For more information, please visit AA4R.
The AA4R demonstrator is a small proof of concept to illustrate the current state of development. Therefore, a sensor network is prepared to exemplify the supervision of a patient, and a medical server is deployed to collect the data of the sensor network. To be more precise, the current setup of the demo displays one patient monitored by two sensors.
