The aim of RegionAAL – focused on the urban centres Graz, Leibnitz and Deutschlandsberg – is to support older adults in being able to reside for longer in their own surroundings. This should be achieved through the implementation of those information and communication technologies (ICT) that are likely to be actually accepted and used by end users. In order to meet this requirement, needs will be assessed and via an analysis of evidence, ICT that is potentially useful for, and acceptable to, this group will be identified.
Existing technologies will be adapted, extended and integrated. Around 100 households will be equipped with the assistance systems. A scientific evaluation with the test households, to run for one year, will assess the effectiveness of ICT in meeting stated aims.
