Pilot project Newborn
Newborn is the name of a new research that started in 2018 on the Healthy Ageing Campus in Groningen. It is a cooperation of Lifelines, the UMGC, Philips and the cooperative of the small businesses and Medtech companies in the Northern Netherlands, who have united themselves in the Live Cooperative. The project Newborn ensures that young families can test devices 'real time', which can contribute to healthy ageing.
In this research project, participants of Lifelines-NEXT are asked to test the devices on themselves or on their own living enviroment. It involves devices that give the user insight in their own health, or devices that can contribute to a better health. Examples are smart tooth brushes, scales, baby monitors and sensors in dipers to avoid sore baby bottoms.
