Development of a training program for the improvement of quality of life of elder persons with reduced mobility through the exploitation of assistive technologies, EDATs (Provisional) / ERMAT
Aim and task
The European project ERMAT was launched to promote older people's skills in using digital mobility support applications. The Institute Work and Technology (IAT/Westphalian University of Applied Sciences Gelsenkirchen) accompanies the European project ERMAT. The aim of the project is to promote the digital skills of older people so that they can integrate digital applications for mobility support into their everyday lives. In this way, older people should be able to live their lives autonomously for as long as possible and their quality of life should be promoted.
Within the scope of the project, the IAT's tasks include not only the screening of mobility assistants, but also the development of training materials. After the project, these materials will be freely available online and can be used by carers and other interested parties to train seniors in the use of digital applications.
The project started with the kick-off event in Bucharest (Romania) in December 2019, where all project partners involved came together for the first time for a direct exchange. In April, the IAT will invite all participating partners to Gelsenkirchen for a first return meeting.
