In this study, authors demonstrate that the use of augmented reality improve the capacities of Alzheimer patient to do complex tasks. Even if the hardware (here they use Hololens from Microsoft) is not adapted to everyday life, this kind of assistance is really promising.
In this crossover study, we used an augmented reality approach using a Microsoft HoloLens to support patients in a tea making task. During task execution, subjects received three-dimensional dynamic holograms of the sub-steps necessary to complete the task. Ten patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease were tested and post-hoc semi-structured interviews were conducted to assess usability.
