Do you want to live independently at home for longer? And could you use some help with that? The right tools can help you to live longer in a healthy, pleasant and independent way at home. Or that informal carers, supervisors and care employees are relieved.
Healthcare technology is for young and old. By healthcare technology we mean all technological aids that you can use at home that make daily life safer or easier. Examples are a digital doorbell or peephole to see who is at the door without having to open it, an app for carers to keep an eye on things or a hip airbag that ensures a soft landing if you fall. But there are many more useful and smart tools.

This has emerged from research by the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC)-Campus The Hague and the municipality of The Hague. This is the largest study ever conducted in the Netherlands into the link between technology and well-being. Look at here the results of the investigation.
