Field test of innovative digital technical assistance systems in the outpatient and inpatient care

  • Ulrich H. P. Fischer EMAIL logo , Jens-Uwe Just and Matthias Haupt


The tecLA project developed a modular system for the area of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) that enables older people to have simple, intuitive access to medical and technical assistance systems. A commercially available AAL application portal has been subjected to acceptance tests and optimizations and has proven itself in field tests. Furthermore, when comparing the self-assessment values to cognitive measures before and after the intervention, a clear trend towards more positive values in the post-test was recorded. It was also shown that the use of the system has very positive effects on communication behavior and cognitive selfassessment. The nurses and doctors can follow the vital signs online in the patient's file and evaluate them immediately.
