New ‘Wonderwall’ to Assist Elderly Living at Home

Researchers from Munich University of Technology (TUM) have created a “wonderwall” that revolutionizes elderly care. This high-tech wall provides assistance in everyday tasks and even monitor their health. It can find misplaced glasses or keys, and check blood pressure and sugar-levels. In case of an emergency, it can even call the doctor.

It features an “indoor positioning system” that keeps track of mislaid items like keys and has an integrated air conditioning system which automatically keeps air circulating in the apartment if the resident forgets to turn it on.
The system also includes with biosensors which zero in on key vital signs like blood pressure and blood sugar levels. After assessing the health of the individual, it could be programmed to come up with suggestions like going out for walk, or perhaps even suggest medication. If things turn critical, it can notify a physician or other health professionals who can also be hooked into the system to regularly check on the patient.
This smart wall will be unveiled in the Munich Creative Business Week.
