The negative behavioral and psychological symptoms (NBPS) seen in patients with cognitive impairment (CI), such as anxiety, agitation and aggression have been reported to be the most problematic for healthcare providers. The consequences of delayed detection of NBPS can be devastating for both patients and caregivers. A proprietary device called; Portable Autonomous Multisensory Intervention Device (PAMID) was developed to monitor physiological conditions wirelessly that will allow for early detection of NBPS and automatically provide a real-time multisensory intervention to reduce NBPS in patients with CI. This paper outlines further development and enhancement of PAMID. The device to be developed will have significant applications in the emerging telehealthcare systems.
