User-Centered development and validation of an intelligent drink reminder device
Aperçu du projet
Dehydration can be dangerous for older adults. Complications include urinary tract infections, increased risk of falls, dizziness, weakness, low blood pressure, kidney damage, delirium, and seizures. People living with dementia have a higher risk of dehydration.
This study will lead to a solution that reminds people living with dementia to stay hydrated. The objectives are to determine how effective an intelligent drink reminder is at increasing hydration; to determine how to optimize hydration, usability, and acceptability of a drink reminder; and to improve a drink-reminder prototype.
