  • 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 ...
  • An attributable cost model for a telecare system using advanced community alarms 

    Brownsell, S. J.; Bradley, David A.; Bragg, R.; Catling, P.; Carlier, J. (Royal Society of Medicine Press Limited, 2001-04)
    We have developed an attributable cost model for a city-based telecare scheme involving 11,618 community alarm users. The equipment was assumed to cost 500-1000 per installation, compared with 175 for the current system. ...
  • Community alarms to telecare: the need for a systems strategy for integrated telehealth provision

    As the number of elderly people in society increases, the use of technology to support the care system is being examined. However, there is no agreed model of a technology-based health-care system that fully integrates the ...
  • 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 ...
