Abstract

Demographic aging poses significant challenges and opportunities in areas such as health care, financial security, and quality of life for the elderly. The person with greater age tends to suffer a series of changes in their physical and mental health that can put his/her life at risk. One of these conditions is a cognitive impairment which, as its name indicates, is a decrease in cognitive abilities such as memory, abstract thinking, language, etc. Although this cognitive deterioration can significantly affect the quality of life of these people, this phenomenon can be reversible or treatable if it is detected in time. With the advances in technology, a special interest has arisen in how to improve the quality of life of the elderly. For this reason, in this work, an innovative method is proposed using an electronic kit and using computer vision. With image feature extraction techniques (Template Matching), it is possible to identify if a circuit is assembled correctly or not. With all this, it is intended that the elderly build the circuit gradually and thus can obtain a better visual perception, better spatial reasoning, and a better quality of life.
