Hoda Nikamalfard, Huiru Zheng, Haiying Wang, Paul Jeffer, Maurice Mulvenna, Paul McCullagh
2011 Proceedings of the 5th International ICST Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare  
In this paper we present a sleep pattern detection and visualization system developed to support the monitoring of sleep patterns and assessment of sleep disturbances for people diagnosed with dementia  ...  The system provides visual tool kits for caregivers to view the sleep profiles and for investigators to analyse sleep patterns based on sensory data gathered at users' home via the telecare service.  ...  Acknowledgment This research is supported by a research grant from the Technology Strategy Board and Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, UK (TS/G002452/1).  ...
