Try the equipment with us to assist the social and healthcare
Our mobile HealthLab equipment consists of devices and software to support living and everyday life (e.g. communication, sleep, eating), rehabilitation and recreational activities, automation of self-measurements and medication, remote healthcare, and practical care work. The social and healthcare providers have tested with us new technologies e.g. in assisted living and home care, rehabilitation, recreational activity for seniors and people with disabilities, mental health care, maternity and child health clinic, hospital and health care centers.
The practical trials have brought information about the suitability of technology to the different social and healthcare settings. Tested devices have been adopted and invested by social and healthcare providers after the trial, knowing the added value to them through experience. Through device trials, social and health care customers have been given the opportunity to take advantage of new innovations to promote their own health.
