Building smart mobility devices
SPRINT puts care in motion.
There are increasing numbers of elderly who need care, and there is a decreasing workforce able to provide that care. Only innovative technical advances can solve this problem and help to keep care available and affordable. The SPRINT programme is therefore aimed at the development of new technologies that enable people to remain independent as long as possible and so minimise their reliance on professional healthcare. SPRINT tries to do that in a way that form a close fit with situations found in practise. Scientists and businesses work in unison on the technologies and the transformation of these technologies into producible and affordable products, that can directly be applied in the living environment of the target group.
