    Abstract

    This paper describes a preliminary study carried out by the Digital Health Group in Intel with an aim to examine daily social rhythms within community dwelling seniors and their relation to objectively and subjectively recorded sleep. Sensing elements were placed in the homes of 10 relatively healthy senior participants for a period of two weeks to monitor sleep and specific social activities including mobility and contact with others.
