Dementia and Technology

The Dementia and Technology center of expertise is an initiative by TU/e, initiated by the departments Industrial Design, Human Technology Interaction and the Built Environment. 

In this center we aim to design, develop, evaluate and research non-pharmaceutical technological interventions for people living with dementia, and their extended care network such as family members and caregivers. Often technology is viewed as a solution for safety, efficiency or care management, however, we see technology can play a significant role in terms of wellbeing and quality of life as well. In this center we explore these possibilities in the context of for example social technology, effects of light, reminiscence technology, effects of sound and much more.

Please have a look at the projects that we have done, the research focus we currently have and the expertise we have in our center.
