Grey but Mobile

This project aims to improve the mobility of the elderly and thus support their independent lifestyle. Instead of spending their last years in elderly homes, elderly people increasingly prefer to receive care at home. Although home care has many advantages, in combination with reduced mobility it may lead to problems with social interaction or even solitude. The latter is in fact counterproductive to health. New product-service systems can be developed and offered to the elderly in order to maintain their independence and social connectivity.
