Abstract

The EU funded project inCASA has brought new insights in the field of socio-medical technology using the context-aware LinkSmart middleware. One of the main concerns that were experienced was whether separate medical devices could aggregate contextual information given by multiple environmental sensors within social care. Energy profiles were hypothesised to be able to substitute many of these in exchange for context information about a patient’s behaviour. A small study was conducted to review the energy profiles given by medical devices at dispose. Unluckily, the results showed that the medical devices do not expose relevant information in order to construct such profiles.
