The network of partners from research and care institutions, SMEs, associations and People with Dementia, work towards the development of design standards for products designed for people living with dementia at home. Together with a certification company, new and existing products for People with Dementia will be evaluated and certified.
The project’s vision is that people living with dementia should be supported in living at home as safe, as well and as long as they can : the mission of the project is to guarantee good quality products, systems and services for people living with dementia and support and encourage companies to design well for people with dementia.
Within the project, products from small and medium companies are tested and improved with the support of people living with dementia.
The researchers contributes to the recruitment and selection of companies for the testing phase in the Living Labs, where people with dementia are involved in meaningful interaction with warm technologies. The outcome of the testing includes a design support for the companies participating to the study, and gives access to the certification process developed by the partners.
