Sensors For Health And Wellbeing

The Sensors for Health and Wellbeing project is investigating how low-cost internet connected sensors might improve healthcare service delivery and wellbeing. The project seeks to understand the potential benefits to health and wellbeing from low-cost internet-connected sensor technologies in the home; to understand how clinicians and 3rd sector organisations might use the data from such technologies to improve health care delivery; and, to understand how these devices might be reimagined to promote better wellbeing for the people whose homes they are in.

The Sensors for Health and Wellbeing project ran alongside a pilot study steered by Blackburn with Darwen County Council deploying pairs of these sensors in 100 homes to improve the wellbeing of persons aged 50+ living in single occupancy homes.
