ProMe partners unveiled the prototype version of the intergenerational cooperation and mentoring platform at the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) Forum in Ghent on 22nd to 24th September 2015. The partners exhibited at the forum to showcase the matchmaking and profiling functions of the platform and receive feedback from delegates about the look, feel and usability of the prototype.
The AAL Forum is an annual event that demonstrates existing and developing ICT solutions which enhance the lives and functional capabilities of older adults. It attracts policy makers, ICT developers, manufacturers, health professionals, commissioners, businesses, venture companies, technologists, academics and designers. This year saw the biggest Forum to date with 550 delegates, 22 exhibitors and over 150 presentations being made.
The event proved to be a success for ProMe with 44 people visiting the stand and 15 companies registering an interest in testing the platform.
The next stage in the project is to gain more feedback from users so the prototype can be developed further.
