Project Title: Exploring the relationship between nocturnal bed occupancy, breathing, and cognitive decline using pressure sensitive mats
This project will test and analyze a pressure-sensitive mat that will allow improved night-time bed monitoring of older adults with cognitive decline. Objective sleep data would help determine treatment plans that could affect cognitive impairment in older adults and would allow the monitoring of the impact of interventions, such as sleeping aids and CPAP.
