CAST releases activity monitoring portfolio

The LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) has released a white paper, matrix and case study for functional assessment and activity monitoring technology.

Functional assessment β€œis the process that captures and analyzes a person's general behavior and capabilities to interact with the world, in order to determine his or her changing needs,” according to CAST.

The matrix compares 17 different products from 15 vendors, and allows providers to select what fits their care settings.

CAST also included a case study on how Terraces of Los Gatos improved efficiency and reduced pressure ulcers and falls through functional assessment technology.
