TSB invests in helping older people stay mobile

Through the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme of the EU, the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) is to invest up to £1m in research and development projects that will stimulate innovation for ICT-based solutions that help older people to sustain an optimal level of mobility for as long as possible.

The Europe-wide programme aims to encourage the development of innovative processes and technologies with an emphasis on providing older people with an enhanced individual sense of confidence, autonomy, competence, security and safety, all of which can be achieved through the provision of better mobility solutions.
