Research Focus

The focus of our R&D activities lies in the areas of Smart Health, Smart Home and Smart Interaction:

  • SMART HOME

Modern technologies such as activity monitoring, automatization and alarm systems are used to develop smart homes that increase older adults’ safety and independence in their own living environment.

  • SMART HEALTH

Modern technologies are used to measure and analyze the health status of older adults to support the processes of prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. Examples of such systems are wearables, telemonitoring and telemedicine.

  • SMART INTERACTION

The interaction between humans and technology requires operating concepts that are intuitive, practical and adapted to the target group. The aim is to create a positive user experience.
