The Consortium on Technology for Proactive Care (CTPC) is a collaborative effort by faculty researchers and health clinicians across the globe to develop economically feasible, technology-based solutions to the health and healthcare challenges of today and the future.
The Consortium on Technology for Proactive Care uses sensors, mobile technologies, and personalized algorithms to support healthy, independent living for older adults, disparate populations, and those with disabilities.
In 2017, the Consortium on Technology for Proactive Care opened NUHome, a fully functional one bedroom apartment-style laboratory located at Northeastern University in Boston. It supports the study of human behavior in the home environment through the use of sensors and mobile technologies.
NUCoach is CTPC's modular coaching system, a powerful yet flexible tool that allows health behavior researchers to collect, analyze, visualize, and act upon health data in near real time.
CTPC uses sensors like the Microsoft Kinect camera to dynamically measure strength, flexibility, and endurance over time.
CTPC is developing a system to infer behaviors in the home, allowing us to design just-in-time interventions to improve health behaviors.
