Monitoring and evaluation of Activities of Daily Living in general, and dressing activity in particular, is an important indicator in the evaluation of the overall cognitive state of patients. In addition, the effectiveness of therapy in patients with motor impairments caused by a stroke, for example, can be measured through long-term monitoring of dressing activity. However, monitoring of dressing activity has not received significant attention. In this paper, we describe a system that can automatically monitor dressing activity and identify dressing failures exhibited by patients. The system uses a synergistic combination of RFID and computer vision in order to identify a number of common dressing failures exhibited by the patients.

Abstract

Monitoring and evaluation of Activities of Daily Living in general, and dressing activity in particular, is an important indicator in the evaluation of the overall cognitive state of patients. In addition, the effectiveness of therapy in patients with motor impairments caused by a stroke, for example, can be measured through long-term monitoring of dressing activity. However, monitoring of dressing activity has not received significant attention. In this paper, we describe a system that can automatically monitor dressing activity and identify dressing failures exhibited by patients. The system uses a synergistic combination of RFID and computer vision in order to identify a number of common dressing failures exhibited by the patients.
