Carleton, Bruyère, Best Buy Health, AGE-WELL partner to support aging in place

April 16, 2021
Carleton University and the Bruyère Research Institute have partnered with Best Buy Health and AGE-WELL on research that will support older adults in living safely and independently through using monitoring technology. Researchers from Carleton and Bruyère will be using Best Buy Health and AGE-WELL technology and financial contributions to research in-home sensor-based smart technologies. The research will focus on a home monitoring system that can monitor older adults’ functioning, translate data into information about wellbeing, and alert remote caregivers to changes in real time. “We are grateful to Best Buy Health, AGE-WELL and Bruyère for sharing their industry expertise, community-based insights and medical clinical expertise, creating a unique team that is well-positioned to tackle this complex issue,” said Rafik Goubran, co-principal investigator and VP (Research and International) at Carleton.
