We study the development and implementation of innovative technologies for medical applications. In doing so, we focus in particular on the challenges that arise from demographic change in the care and health sector.
For example, we are investigating how technological innovations can be ethically combined with new concepts of healthy aging and alternative ways of living (AAL-Active and Assisted Living). Through basic research, we address ethically sensitive and socially relevant issues, support R&D projects with regard to user needs and carry out studies on acceptance and trust in new medical technologies.
