An invitation to help shape SPHERE's research


4.00pm-6.30pm, At-Bristol, Anchor Road, Harbourside, Bristol BS1 5DB

You are warmly invited to At-Bristol's education space on Saturday 30th January 2016 to find out more about SPHERE's sensors for home healthcare and how you can get involved in helping develop them.

The event will be suitable for both adults and children, with plenty of activities to explore how the technology works. The afternoon will include the chance to see a FREE show at the planetarium.

Free refreshments will be provided. 

We'd really like to hear your thoughts and opinions about the SPHERE technology and it would be great to see you there. 

Places are limited, so register for free tickets now at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/friends-of-sphere-using-technology-to-stay-healthy-at-home-tickets-19423922475
 
If you are unable to attend on this date, but are still keen to get involved, we will be hosting addition events later in 2016. Please note that the event will be held at At-Bristol but does not include entry to the exhibits.

What is SPHERE?
• SPHERE is an exciting five-year research project using sensor technology in people’s homes to help solve health problems
• This information could be used to tackle lifestyle-related conditions such as asthma, obesity and diabetes
• It could also help spot medical issues such as strokes or predict falls

How does it work?
The sensors are small and will be placed in rooms around the house. They will gather information about the environment – such as air quality, humidity and energy use. Video and wearable sensors will measure people’s movement around the house.They will also be used to track breathing patterns. This information can be used to help with a range of healthcare and wellbeing issues.
