MALAGA / March 14 and 15, 2024.


A team of researchers belonging to our research group has presented to the CRMF of San Fernando IMSERSO and the Faculty of Medicine of Malaga at the TECNOSOCIAL 2024 scientific event:


A smart home prototype adapted to the needs of people with cognitive impairment


This is a housing prototype developed in virtual reality, in which you can view different adaptations that can be made to the house to adapt it to the specific needs of people with Alzheimer’s disease. It is one of the innovative transfer results obtained in the state research project ALZARQ during the last three years. The smart home that is now presented is based on an automation home existing in the Recovery Centres for People with Physical Disabilities (CRMF) of San Fernando (Cádiz) of the IMSERSO. In this place, since 2000, technological adaptation solutions have been tested for people with reduced mobility so that they can live autonomously at home.



Now we take another step on the path undertaken two decades ago as we investigate how to adapt to this domestic environment, applying some of the criteria and indications of the recent regulations on cognitive accessibility, the recent Law 6/2022, and the Royal Decree 193/2023. The research is carried out on a specific population: users with mild or moderate Alzheimer’s. TECNOSOCIAL 2024 is a leading meeting forum that brings together 500 people and 35 exhibitors to show innovations in social services to improve care for vulnerable people.
