DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF AN AMBIENT INTELLIGENT SYSTEM SUPPORTING DEPRESSION THERAPY

Fiemke Both, Mark Hoogendoorn, Michel Klein, Jan Treur

Abstract

This paper addresses the design of an ambient intelligent system to support humans that follow “activity scheduling” therapy to recover from a uni-polar depression. The system consists of a personalized website and a mobile-phone based reporting a reminder system. To analyse the system, a previously developed dynamic model is used to simulate a client. It is illustrated by interactive simulation that the system is more effective than the plain internet-based therapy that is offered at the moment. In continuation of the work described in this paper a clinical trial is planned in the first half of 2009.
