IT for Care and Living Assistance

Living in Security and Self-Determination

Which support does the care and social economy need? How do we preserve our self-determination into old age? What can housing companies offer their tenants with physical and mental limitations? How do new communities arise?

These questions are in focus of the business area » Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)« of Fraunhofer ISST. We develop information technological solutions that bring telemedicine and comfort functions via broadband cost-effective and easy to use into the own home.
