Nothing exceeds meeting people eye-to-eye, but new telepresence technology provides, however the second best. CVN results will be based on user oriented research of the elderly and elderly organisations, creating a network that supports:
- Family contact and activities, connecting the elderly with their family, friends and relatives to support their social needs from a distance;
- Care contact, connecting the elderly with their care professional and supporting the care plan;
- Community, connecting the elderly with the community, based on shared interests, hobbies, pastimes and personal experiences.
ConnectedVitality – The Personal Telepresence Network (CVN) – aims to link groups of senior citizens into a video communication network, enabling them to choose the activity as well as levels of social interaction according to their individual needs, abilities and lifestyle.
Expected results and impact:
We believe that with the creation of a new generation of multipoint videoconferencing formats tuned to the personal preferences of the elderly. In which up to 50 people can interact and conduct social meaningful activities with each other, a new vision on meaningful contact from a distance will arise.
