  • Assistive technology and telecare: forging solutions for independent living 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A. (Policy Press, 2003)
    Assistive technology and telecare are of increasing importance in government policy on healthcare provision. This is reflected in the NHS Plan 2000, which suggested that 50 per cent more people should be in receipt of ...
  • Developing a systems and informatics based approach to lifestyle monitoring within eHealth: part I- technology and data management 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A.; Cardinaux, Fabien; Hawley, Mark (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-27)
    Lifestyle monitoring forms a subset of telecare in which data derived from sensors located in the home is used to identify variations in behaviour which are indicative of a change in care needs. Key to this is the ...
  • Developing a systems and informatics based approach to lifestyle monitoring within eHealth: part II - analysis & interpretation 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A.; Cardinaux, Fabien; Hawley, Mark (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-27)
    Lifestyle monitoring as a subset of telecare sets out to use information derived from a range of sensors to put in place a profile of individual behaviour against which changes in behaviour can be compared and referenced ...
  • eHealth and the internet of things 

    Ball, Leslie D.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Keates, Simeon; Bradley, David; Brownsell, Simon (SciTePress - Science and Technology Publications, 2013)
    To respond to an ageing population, eHealth strategies offer significant opportunities in achieving a balanced and sustainable healthcare infrastructure. Advances in technology both at the sensor and device levels and in ...
  • Emotive computing may have a role in telecare 

    Ball, Leslie D.; Bradley, David A.; Brownsell, Simon (Royal Society of Medicine Press, 2011-09)
    This brief paper sets out arguments for the introduction of new technologies into telecare and lifestyle monitoring that can detect and monitor the emotive state of patients. The significantly increased use of computers ...
  • A home daily activity simulation model for the evaluation of lifestyle monitoring systems 

    Cardinaux, Fabien; Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David; Hawley, Mark S. (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    Lifestyle monitoring (LM) technology is part of a new generation of telecare which aims to observe the daily activities of older or vulnerable individuals and determine if a medical or care intervention would be beneficial. ...
  • Linking recorded data with emotive and adaptive computing in an eHealth environment 

    Ball, Leslie D.; Bradley, David A.; Szymkowiak, Andrea; Brownsell, Simon (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-29)
    Telecare, and particularly lifestyle monitoring, currently relies on the ability to detect and respond to changes in individual behaviour using data derived from sensors around the home. This means that a significant aspect ...
  • A systematic review of lifestyle monitoring technologies 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A.; Blackburn, Steve; Cardinaux, Fabien; Hawley, Mark S. (Royal Society of Medicine Press, 2011)
    The evidence base for lifestyle monitoring is relatively weak, even though there are significant numbers of commercial installations around the world. We conducted a literature review to summarize the current position with ...
