The Home Lab
Our Home Lab mimics the home or care environment and allows volunteer users to simulate living normally, testing a range of technologies whilst being observed and evaluated by researchers. The Home Lab also helps people to define their needs for technology.
Our research is focused around co-design whichmeans that every project we work on will always involvecollaborations with one or more of industry, patients andthe public, charities, NHS, clinicians, social careproviders and local authorities.
