‘If you understand misunderstood behavior, you know better what to do,’ says regional manager Gerard Cialdella of Prinsenstichting. This organization for people with intellectual disabilities works together with the Eindhoven-based company Mentech. Together they tested and validated the HUME software system, which can detect increasing tension and stress and predict escalations from a client’s physiology. Cialdella: ‘Based on this, we can analyze what is causing the tension, such as excessive stimulation or a certain sound. We can also use it to measure the effectiveness of an intervention, such as going for a walk, or certain medication.
