This chapter describes the original SENSE-GARDEN concept and its supporting technology. In addition, it gives an updated reporting on the current implementations in real care settings. The chapter has a technical perspective but gives insights into both the clinical and the sociological perspectives. For the validation of the SENSE-GARDEN the test sites have conducted a clinical study designed as a multisite before-after controlled trial.
