Abstract

In this chapter we discuss efforts to measure natural human movement and describe a novel location aware technology to study the relationship of movement to health changes. Several syndromes whose understanding may be increased by a more thorough analysis of movement are identified. We conclude with a discussion of how location aware technologies can play a role in identifying problems and solutions in the design of living spaces for the elderly.
