CARIAD hosts Hack Funshop for Dementia Aprons

DSC06349CARIAD had a fantastic day at the Hack Funshop today. We brought together health professionals and technologists with academics and keen students interested in designing for the ageing population. The aim of the day was to develop ‘dementia aprons’ – Garments that are embedded with smart technology in order to stimulate, amuse and engage people with late stage dementia.

We are grateful to Cardiff Met for funding the event and to everybody for sharing their ideas, designing prototypes and taking the time to contribute to this important research. Watch out here for more developments
