Do you or your company work with new welfare technologies? Do you need a test site for trying out your solutions in real life?

On the 17th of December the Living Lab Strandvejen has opened for companies to test and develop new technologies to support elderly citizens in their everyday life, as well as to support the City’s employees in providing elderly people with the best possible rehabilitation, training and activity. The tested technologies provide the basis for what the City of Copenhagen meaningfully can extend to city-wide solutions for elderly citizens and employees.

The tests can take the form of everything from dialogue with elderly citizens and employees on everyday life and need, to active participation in the development and testing of new solutions.

Strandvejen 119 is a rehabilitation and activity center for people older than 65 years who have had a decrease in functional capacity. The center also offers preventive and recurrent activity services for elderly citizens living in their own homes.

The Living Lab Strandvejen is a test ground-floor apartment, which provides easy access to the house and makes it visible to everyone what is happening. The test apartment can be used for showcasing and testing new technologies, training of elderly people, sales meetings etc. It will also be possible to develop and test new technologies in two sections of the rehabilitation and activity center, with the capacity of 54 rehabilitation seats as well as in the rehabilitation center’s facilities for exercise and activity.
