What do we mean by technology for a better society?
Welfare and integration
Different types of welfare technology:
Technology for safety and health
There are people of all ages who are dependent on care. The elderly can benefit from technology such as security alarms and motion sensors in case they fall or get injured. Others can use welfare technology to measure, for example, their blood sugar and blood pressure at home. The results are automatically saved in the patient's medical record.
Technology for integrating refugees
In connection with the significant increase of refugees to Europe, important tasks concerning settlement and integration are becoming a challenge for many authorities. To make sure that we can assist refugee services to work, we must use technology that contributes to the structure and efficiency of the municipality's integration work—putting people first.
Technology for social contact
Preventing loneliness and keeping in touch with friends and family is an important part of life quality, especially in the digital age. Technology such as custom video communication solutions can help maintain the normal structure of everyday life, uphold social connection, and reduce loneliness.
