DomAssist: Help at home for the elderly

CD - 3/03/2014

The DomAssist project aims to improve the well-being and independence of the elderly in their own homes by installing a range of simple sensors to detect movement, light and electricity usage. The readings from these sensors are then combined intelligently by a number of applications that interact with the user by means of a tablet computer.

New technologies help us understand how infectious diseases spread in a hospital environment


A joint study of the interactions between all the people in a hospital, the i-Bird (Individual-based Investigation of Resistance Dissemination) experiment has helped identify the factors involved in the spread and transmission of bacteria that cause nosocomial infections. The results confirm that new technologies may be useful in analysing epidemics. The initial results of this research project, led by teams at Inserm, the Institut Pasteur, ENS Lyon and Inria in conjunction with the AP-HP at the Hôpital Maritime de Berck-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais) have just been published in PLOS Computational Biology.
