Presentation and objectives

The MATUROLIFE’s goal is to develop new materials that are capable of to offer assistive technologies for elderly people with a high degree of aesthetic design and functionality. The challenges are therefore new materials and design. 3 pilots will be generated to test these technologies assisted living with the elderly: Armchair (in which the partner participates) Aragonese MUEBLECONFORT), shoes and clothing.

The project has commenced on January 1, 2018, and will have a duration of 3 years. The The consortium is made up of 20 partners and coordinated by the University of Coventry.

ITAINNOVA is the leader of work package 6, which consists of the integration of the materials generated in the pilots, ensuring the functionality and safety of the pilots and the creation of the Big Data platform to obtain information from the themselves.
