Abstract

This paper proposes a new concept, a Life Support Network (LSN), for elderly people living in rural areas. The network is an intranet that incorporates a safety confirmation system, a remote healthcare system and an emergency information system. We developed an experimental LSN system and carried out a field experiment in a typical rural town “Shiwa” in Iwate Prefecture of Japan. We demonstrated the experimental LSN, called “Yui Net,” performs well in the field.
