This is a brief film describing the functionality and the inner behaviour of a system called Contexta-Care, a monitoring facility for independent-living elders. The first challenge for such a film is to give in a few minutes a fair idea of what the system can do in a real case. The target audience is first of all the geriatric health-care professionals but the system should be almost completely understandable by any person. The second challenge is that most of the “action” happens over many hours, days or even weeks and just showing the “real time” behaviour is not enough.
