gAALaxy aims at putting the untapped potential of existing AAL-solutions into practice by smartly combining single solutions to a reliable and easy controllable technology and service bundle based on the demand of the market.
The solution-bundle will be put into practice as an international pilot region (Austria, Belgium and Italy) with iterative testing. gAALaxy follows an end-user driven methodology throughout the entire development process by involving primary end-users, secondary end-users (both informal and formal) as well as service providers (PE, i-SE, f-SE, SP, TE) in each of the participating countries. The main goal is to guarantee the PE’s social participation and overall wellbeing as well as to support them in living independently at home with a broad control of their own decisions and daily activities.
The continuous involvement of end-users in the project, starting from the selection over the personal adaption of the technology bundle to the consecutive pilot-testing, is one of the core aspects with regard to the applied methodology.
