Who We Are. Robotic Researchers and Innovators

Angen Research and Innovation develops and showcases technologies like robots and intelligent systems for facilitating aging in place. It is located in one of Sweden's most innovative facilities which contains several different forms of living, health clinics, rehabilitation clinics and more. At Angen there is a collaborative effort involving researchers, companies,and the public sector. Today Ängen is supported by Örebro University, the city council, the municipality, and Örebro Science Park. It also is funded by NovaMedTech Regional Funds, Robot-Dalen, and EU-FP7. Most importantly Angen facilitates cooperative development involving researchers, companies, and users. This accelerates the uptake of solutions.

One of Ängen's unique qualities is that it is more than just a showcase. A number of cutting edge research project supported by the EU and Swedish national funding use Ängen as a facility for developing new solutions. Read about some the of projects below - some cover blue sky research topics while others are very close to the market and application.


GiraffPlus is a complex system which can monitor activities in the home using a network of sensors, both in and around the home as well as on the body. The sensors can measure e.g. blood pressure or detect e.g. whether somebody falls down.
