The purpose of this research is to compare the effectiveness of a continuous monitoring system to assess Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) over time compared to the traditional assessments used by medical professionals as Alzheimer's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) progresses.
Demonstrate equivalency of the proposed IoT system against ADCS-ADL/23 Assessment [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
The ADCS-ADL/23 assessment will be utilized to measure changes in activities of daily living in the sample population while BC's system is also in place independently measuring the changes in activities of daily living.
Identify improved sensitivities for detection of early and moderate-stage AD/ADRD activities of daily living changes [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
AI techniques will search sensor data for subfactor and novel groupings for statistically significant improvements from what is measured by the ADCS/ADL-23 assessment of decline.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Establish initial data sets and protocols for use of the developed ADL/IADL system data for integration with AD/ADRD research [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
Database structures and meta-data will be established for anonymous data sets.
