Digibox – communication platform to support nursing and care
The aim of the research project is to facilitate the everyday working life of caregivers through tailored digitization. For this purpose, the communication platform “AmigoBox” of the association OSSI Austria – Open Source for Social Inclusion Austria, which has already been tested with elderly persons, is used as a starting point. The innovative interaction concept using contactless NFC technology will be evaluated and discussed together with caregivers. Subsequently, possibilities for the supportive use in nursing will be designed, which facilitate the daily work. Concepts derived from this will subsequently be implemented iteratively and according to the principles of human-centered design and tested in practice.
