Warm technology puts people with dementia center stage

Warm technology is a user-friendly, non-stigmatizing technology aimed at what people with dementia can still do. This week the research into this topic at TU/e was formally recognized by Alzheimer Nederland as an expertise center. This makes the Expertise Centre Dementia & Technology the sixth expertise center of this organization, and the first specifically focused on technology. Researchers Rens Brankaert and Wijnand IJsselsteijn, initiators of the center, explain how warm technology can help people with dementia. “With warm technology we want to add life to the years, instead of just adding years to life.”
