AAL – Ambient Assisted Living

Ambient Assisted Living includes all projects, devices and services that support elderly people or people with special needs in their daily life.

AAL / Assisted Living means, for example, barrier-free concepts and/or controlling the environment. Likewise, alarm functions that support us when we need help.

The aim is to design the living space in such a way that people with special needs and impairments can manage their everyday lives without outside help as far as possible. The aim is to enable them to live as independently as possible in their own homes for as long as possible – a very understandable wish for many people.

We believe that technological support in everyday life will play an important role in the future: The proportion of seniors in the population is growing, and by 2034 the baby boomer generation with the highest birth rates will be retiring. Due to medical advances, life expectancy is increasing and with it the number of people who need support in old age. At the same time, we are heading for an intensive shortage of skilled nursing staff – not only in Austria

Furthermore, the solutions have evolved through technological development and have become cheaper and less complex to implement, for example, through the connection with radio technology.
