Research Activities

  • AgeWell

    AgeWell is developing a virtual coach to accompany older workers during and beyond the retirement process. The main focus of the project is on promoting a meaningful life and a healthy lifestyle. In the project, the FH Wiener Neustadt is responsible for the integration of the respective Austrian target group, for the selection of the robot components, as well as for the implementation of the intended case scenarios. (Funding authority: FFG and Active Assisted Living Programme; Website: https://agewell-project.eu/)

  • TCI

    The Take Care International (TCI) project is focusing internationally on the further development of the serious game app "Take Care", which was developed for training in health care and nursing. The app enables users of the app to virtually complete night and day shifts in a long-term care facility as part of the theoretical training in nursing. The focus is on communication with residents, suffering from dementia and the resulting "challenging" behaviors. Find more Information: https://tci.eduproject.eu/
