Innovative products for more quality of life and safety for dementia patients

Around 1.7 million people in Germany currently suffer from dementia. To provide them and their relatives with sustainable support and relieve caregivers in the long term, we are working with high-tech companies in the ZIM-network ‘KMU4DEMENTIA’ on innovative products such as technical assistance systems and software-based concepts. One example is the correct interpretation of patients' state of mind with the help of artificial intelligence.
