Assistive Devices are employed in various applications, ranging from in-home monitoring of medical symptoms to support in reminding activities of daily living. In these devices, crucial characteristics are non-obtrusiveness, low-maintenance, and simplicity for the user, for data extraction as well as for application development. The Set for Intuitive Movement and Proximity Logging for Everyday (SIMPLE) use focuses on the research and development of applications related to the detection and measurement of movement and interaction, i.e., proximity to objects of daily use. It encompasses the sensors themselves, charging stations, as well as devices for online and offline data collection, forwarding, and extraction. It also supports the adjustment of basic recording parameters as well as changing the device's firmware needing only a memory card reader. Basic power saving and movement detection algorithms are already implemented. SIMPLE-use closes a gap, offering both movement and interaction acquisition in one easy to use sensor set.
