GPS and Dementia Early Detection

It would seem that GPS and early dementia detection would have nothing to do with each other. However, it ends up that the wider a person's travel space, or life space, the more likely it is that they are feeling somewhat unlimited freedom of movement. Life space is considered to be the geographic area that a person traverses daily. People with dementia have long been thought to limit their life space, and only travel within a certain orbit.


In the past, studies relied mostly on personal accounts from memory, the one variable that is compromised with people suffering from dementia. Now, through the use of GPS tracking on people's phones, researchers have been able to verify that such sufferers don't travel as widely when they make their daily trips.


This confirms other notions about people suffering with dementia; namely that their functional qualities in general begin to decline.


The involved researchers included an associate professor at the University of Waterloo. Pascal Poupart led this study, along with Professor Eric Roy, at the same university. With their computer science and applied science specializations, they were able to find undeniable evidence. That evidence came in the form of definite patterns.


The studies have been promising on several fronts, including the fact that they can help to assess whether someone is experiencing early signs of dementia and whether prescribed medication for diagnosed patients is working, etc.


One noticeable highlight is that these studies bring objectivity into the picture, which results in more data reliability.
