RMHC Associate Professor & Colleagues Receive Top Poster at International Society for Gerontechnology Conference

William Kearns, PhD, recently returned from Taipei, Taiwan where he presented a poster at the 9th Annual World Conference of Gerontechnology. The poster entitled, Location Aware Smart Watch to Support Aging in Place was one of three out of a field of 60 posters chosen for a certificate. The smart watch reveals the location of the wearer in monitored space and provides auditory, visual and vibratory signals for prompts and reminders contingent on schedule and/or location and is currently being used in a residential cognitive rehabilitation program for veterans with traumatic brain injury.
