Abstract or Description

This paper explores automation in monitoring the well-being of senior adults. Namely, it introduces TwitterJacket, an automated activity and health monitoring solution through the use of wearable sensors and mobile devices. The system takes advantage of wearable electrocardiography (ECG) monitoring and accelerometer data to recognize user activity and publish on Twitter. In this paper, we discuss the motivation behind such platforms, the TwitterJacket architecture, and the present implementation.
