          Abstract

          An automated scheme is proposed to assess the ability of elderly people to live alone in the community. It employs an Enhanced Activities of Daily Living index based on a computerized questionnaire form. In addition, a number of low-cost sensors have been developed which provide electronic measures of certain activities; these can provide additional inputs to the assessment form using telemetry. The sensors are capable of measuring a wide range of functional performance, thus providing the means of continuously and objectively assessing a patient's condition following hospitalization.
