What is Guide?
People with cognitive problems due to aquired brain injury or dementia are frequently dependent on other people to help them perform the tasks of daily living such as dressing and laundry. In many cases this is not because they cannot physically perform the tasks but because of problems remembering what to do and in what order to perform the individual actions required. Technology could potentially support people to do these tasks in a more independent way. Guide is a system that has been developed to verbally prompt users through every day tasks.
Our on-going research is refining the design and testing the efficacy of Guide.
