The shortcut to better care for the elderly – research and development grounded in reality
Ängen Research and Innovation allows researchers, innovators, caregivers and the elderly to work cooperatively together. This enables better and more effective solutions, often with shorter development time and a faster product launch. Our overall goal is to improve the quality of life for the elderly and sick in their own home environment.
The Ängen Research and Innovation apartment provides an environment where developers and users can meet. Ssimple products as well as more advanced systems – such as robots and intelligent systems – can be tested by elderly people in a home-like environment. We offer one of Europe’s largest and most innovative settings that contains several different types of accommodation, medical services and clinics for rehabilitation.
Our overall goal is to improve the quality of life of the elderly and allow them to live independent lives. We also want to help those who wish to provide personalised care in a home environment.
Ängen is a PPP (Private / Public Partnership) initiative and is funded by Örebro University, Örebro Municipality, Alfred Nobel Science Park, Robotdalen and the EU.
