Interactive Technologies for Children

We are interested in leveraging technology to help children participate in nurturing and empowering experiences. To that end, we focus on practical, innovative interactive systems that fits into children’s culture. We develop these systems and evaluate them with children through empirical lab-studies as well as field trials in after-school workshops.

Health Informatics

An important key to ageing healthily is physical activity. The aim of the project AEQUIPA is the development of interventions which promote physical activity in old age. Therefore, factors within a community which influence the mobility are being investigated and interventions developed. A special focus lies on measures which are applicable to all socio- economic groups of people within the community.
Within the scope of AEQUIPA, OFFIS examines the application of technology-based interventions on the basis of sensor-detected vital parameters for the preservation of mobility of older people. Furthermore, OFFIS is working on detecting preventive measures for functional decline of muscle groups and is creating a system for monitoring and displaying physical activity.
