The impact of the European demographic change is widely recognised, making the need to address the problem both from a societal and economic standpoint critical. In the light of this, research into aging, age-related conditions and into supporting an aging population has become a priority for many governments around the world.
AAL aims to provide assistive solutions for people affected by a wide range of physical and cognitive challenges in particularly, elderly persons.
