UPM tracking technology to help those with Alzheimer’s
By TAN EE LOU
SERDANG: Universiti Putra Malaysia researchers have come up with a tracking device that could be used to monitor the spatial movement of those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
The device, which is called the Alzheimer's real time location system, could help care-givers monitor the patients remotely in real time.
“You can study the patient's behavior and take appropriate actions, for example, if he eats up to 22 times or spends too long in the toilet,” said researcher Assoc Dr Abdul Rashid Mohamed Shariff at UPM here Wednesday.
