Publication date: 7 April 2017
Researchers are developing a new high-tech sensory bracelet to help patients with Alzheimer’s or other related diseases.
The new device detects a patient’s agitation before something happens.
“It’s really important for people trying to take care of people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia to help understand what causes them to become upset or agitated,” said clinical team member, Martha Anderson, a professor at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
Researchers from Carilion, U.Va. and North Carolina A&T State University created this sensory tool.
