Abstract

This paper presents an innovative medical grade telecommunication system (combining professional and consumer equipments) and its service platform extended with a personalization technology to automatically adapt the services to the end-user disabilities, preferences, and context. This system has been developed in the scope of an ‘assisted living’ home and several applications have been demonstrated upon it (e.g., activity proposition, reminders, and alerts). Such demonstrations have highlighted the added value of the adaptation technology to enhance the quality of life of elderly people as well as the efficiency of the caregivers’ work.
