Voice Activated Home Monitoring for Post-operative Patient Care

Home is the best place for recovery. A new voice activated home monitoring system is being developed as an extension of the healthcare service from hospitals to home for effective post-operative recovery. This system creates an effective bridge between providers and patients at home. It consists of a take home health kit component tailored to each patient’s specific condition. Each kit consists of personalized health sensors and an assistive device, such as Amazon Alexa, which is programmed to instruct the patient at designated times for routine data collection. The assistive device serves as the eyes and ears of this home care system where patients can interactively follow the systematic instructions to get their health monitoring done at home.
