Linked Care

Linking and connecting, Linked Care is intended as a comprehensive digital system to ensure a stringent flow of information and a continuous supply of information in mobile care, assistance and therapy.

The demographic development causes a strongly growing need for care, assistance and therapy with a simultaneously decreasing supply of health professionals. This results in a high workload and, in addition, often different settings such as inpatient, day-care, mobile or private care, nursing and therapy intertwine. The exchange of information is often incomplete or requires a lot of additional time. The reason for this is the lack of interfaces and standards in IT systems and communication. The great differences in the type and scope of documentation cause additional work, because data must be recorded x times.

Keep it Simple

The aim of the project is to design a mobile e-Learning platform on which all information and training programs that are needed within a care facility are available. Digital, interactive information sources consisting of a varied mix of vides, short texts and interactive quizzes should bring more attractiveness to the important content and make learning easier. As a result, we expect more work-related knowledge among the employees.

Research results will be published here.

Duration: October 2020 – April 2022

Smart Companion

Smart Companion combines autonomous low-cost robot sensors (vacuum cleaner robots) with smart voice interaction for assistance systems. The system actively addresses users with appropriate questions and information on selected health and social issues. The iterative development and validation of the demonstrator is carried out both by a user-centered design approach together with test users and by extended focus groups. An ethics board continuously monitors and controls data protection and ethics with the aim of making a self-determined decision for users.
