A chance to share information about the upcoming project
It’s been a busy few months for the ALL INN project, here’s the highlights!
Our latest session was in February with a security company looking to apply their technological expertise to branch out into health and care products. They engaged ALL INN for a needs analysis session with people who fit the profile of the customers they hope to attract. This will be the first of a series of sessions as they bring the product (or design) back at various stages to get more valuable input from real people. Watch this space for further information.
As well as sessions some longer term projects are underway looking at assistive technology, but always with a focus on the person using the technology and how it will best suit them. An exciting project is Activage, an EU Horizon 2020 project looking at wearables and home sensors for over-65s across Leeds, with IoT-enabled devices interconnecting people and place in an exciting new way. The technology provider for this project is Samsung and we are currently in the design phase. This is an ambitious and important project, stay tuned for updates!
Let’s Get Digital event, marketplace stall shared with Smart Cities
It’s been a while since ALL INN’s last blog post, but that’s not to say we haven’t been busy!
We’ve got lots of plans for the year ahead, starting this week with a session for a company who work with security solutions but are looking to move into gadgets to help support people with dementia. The session will give them access to people who live with dementia and their carers, and professionals who work closely with people with dementia and determine what features their solution will need to consider.
ALL INN may have been quiet on the blog front for a while but we’ve been working hard in the background!
A session took place in late September which may lead to an exciting collaboration – watch this space for more details on that. We’ve been featured in a case study on the brand new Translate website, which you can read here as well as on the Doing Good Leeds website.
In addition to this we have a new session to look forward to in the New Year. It will take place on the 3rd February 2017 and is for people living with dementia and their carers, and professionals working in dementia.
