In order to improve healthcare services and support clinical professionals, it is important to develop the unobstructive and automatic ADLs monitoring system for healthcare applications. Currently, various works have been developed for the monitoring of daily activities, such as ambulation, kitchen task, food and fluid intake, dressing, and medication intake while only few works paid attention to the housekeeping task. Housekeeping activity is a complex task, generally important for the several clinical assessment tools. In this work, we design and develop a wearable sensor-based activity recognition system recognize housekeeping tasks and classify the activity level. The proposed system achieves 90.67% accuracy for housekeeping tasks recognition, and 94.35% accuracy for activity level classification, respectively. The results of the experiment demonstrate that the system is reliable and fulfills the requirements of the unobstructive, objective, and long-term monitoring system.
