Nursing Home

Nursing Home

In our aging society, we should learn from data to develop a sustainable health system that supports older people.
As older people have complex health status and their lifestyle greatly affect their health, we should attempt to capture the multiple determinants of their health beyond medical data.
We are working on a project using a user-friendly IoT (Internet of Things) device that automatically collects older people’s daily life activities in nursing homes.
From the comprehensive health-related data, we can identify the high-risk population for loss of independence and then prepare an effective support plan for their healthy longevity.


Healthy Aging Project at nursing home

We are working on multifaceted data analysis for the prevention of functional loss in older people in nursing homes. We use the IoT device BEACON to capture the activities of older people. Since 2016, we have been collaborating with the Japan Elderly Welfare Foundation.
This project is funded by JSPS KAKENHI (Grant Number 17KT0041).
