Complete Ambient Assisted Living Experiment (Spain/UK)

The CAALYX project will develop and test a light, mobile device to monitor a number of vital signs and transmit the information to an intelligent data-logging system. While the two-year project is to be led by Spanish telecommunications firm Telefonica, Plymouth University will take a lead role in developing the technology. On the whole this project feels as though it is going over ground that has already been covered in other countries, but the item also reports that Limerick University is to develop fall detection accelerometers, which will be able to predict falls.
