Computers Helping People with Special Needs
Mobility support exists for a variety of target groups. Most of these approaches do not consider people with dementia although mobility is crcial to preserve physical abilities and slow down the course of disease. This paper presents an approach which tackles the consequences of dementia on mobility on different levels. The preparation phase gains self-confidence. A smart device base solution informs the traveler and checks if she is in a state of confusion. Stakeholder involvement, like informal and formal caregivers, and an incremental safety not ensure a subtle and effective resolution of situations of confusion.
