Design for ageing well
Improving quality of life for the ageing population using a technology enabled garment system.
The design for ageing well project focussed on bringing emerging wearable technologies to active members of older age groups who do not suffer from restrictive medical conditions.
The proposal addressed “Ageing well across the life courses: autonomy and independence” with a multi-disciplinary team incorporating researchers from technical textiles, wearable electronics and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and social and care sectors, with active participation from the users.
