A Discussion on the Legal Barriers in Addressing Sleeping Disorders in Aged Care Using Wireless Technology

ACCIC 2004 Proceedings Papers: First Australian Aged and Community Care Informatics Conference

Abstract: Disturbed sleep can affect personal well being. In the case of old people, disturbed sleep will impede recovery from any illness. Therefore, sleep quality is an essential ingredient for well being. While previous studies have provided a number of solutions based on clinical trials, it appears that 'technology' solutions are not yet caught up with the problems of sleeping specific to aged care. This 'research in progress' paper provides a conceptual model of how wireless technology solutions can provide answers to some of the monitoring problems of sleeping disorders. Based on the review conducted by the JBI on sleep research, this paper provides guidelines to future research. The paper also provides current status of regulatory issues that may affect the uptake of wireless solutions in this domain.
