CHALLENGE AND AMBITIONS
Because new technologies and new aids are constantly entering the market, The Knowledge Center for Welfare and Assistive Technology West Denmark's (The Knowledge Center) goal is to enable staff in welfare to see the potential in these new, digital solutions and technologies in synergy with citizens. And therefore, the ambition was to improve the way professional caregivers are introduced to these new welfare technologies for the benefit of both the caregiver and the citizen.
As experts in digital learning and technological innovation, Cadpeople was invited to help achieve the ambition.
The Knowledge Center and Cadpeople have developed a digital learning platform called ViVA, exploring the huge potential in applying virtual reality and touch screen as core technologies to train future caregivers in the use of welfare technologies in realistic, natural settings with future-proof, modern technologies, and practical, realistic learning approaches.
