Task Assistance for Persons with Cognitive Disabilities

Abstract

Persons with cognitive disabilities like dementia, Alzheimer's disease or autism are often not capable of fulfilling activities of daily living (ADLs) which leads to a limitation or even a loss of independence. In TAPED, we develop an automatic prompting system for persons with cognitive disabilities in the healthcare domain. The system assists the user in the daily routine of brushing their teeth while prompts are delivered if necessary, allowing for a flexible task execution.
