LEA tested in EU
Our care robot LEA has resulted from the EU project Silver. Silver has stimulated us to come with a solution that will help elderly stay longer independent in their own homes, increase their mobility, ensures they stay healthy and allow for a more efficient distribution of the care staff.
We have performed 5 months long tests in 5 EU countries. In Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands and UK, we have tested with 50 users in total where age varied from 55 to 100 years. Testing lasted 3 weeks per user and was performed in many different locations grouped in three scenarios: care centres, home care and elderly rehabilitation.

LEA has been developed within the framework of the European SILVER project, which stands for Supporting Independent Living for the Elderly through Robotics (www.silverpcp.eu).
