In an era of demographic change, we have set ourselves the goal of improving the quality of life of the elderly and those with limitations and disabilities. We want to enable them to have greater independence and to be able to participate in life more fully. To achieve this, we need to tailor technologies and products more closely to their practical needs and wishes.

In the SmartTex-assist network, researchers, designers and manufacturers research and develop innovative products to meet the needs of people with disabilities. In addition to developing “smart” clothing and aids for the disabled, there is also a need to market these innovations and the positive effects they can have on the whole home and living environments of the disabled.

In the meantime we are able to reveal the first research findings:

Until now researchers, designers and manufacturers have worked independently of one another. We promote cooperative collaboration between them and directly involve those affected by disabilities and their needs in the process. This results in valuable synergic interaction.

Interested? Then do come to one of our forthcoming workshops. Send us an email and we will be happy to send you an invitation.
