NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT Health Informatics Group prototype smartwear that can talk to Facebook. The smartwear can provide collaboration support for those who cannot use touch-screen smartphones, for instance rescuers, firefighters or people with reduced physical abilities. The jacket can wirelessly read your Facebook updates, vibrate the skin of your neck, in this way getting your attention to check the LCD screen attached to your sleeve.
NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT health informatics group use social media to detect and manage falls among elderly people. The solution allows family and neighbors to participate in fall detection and help dispatching.
