Welcome to Alfa
Alfa will develop technology to support people with early stage dementia by stimulating their cognitive functions, supporting their ability for independent living.
The scientific framework we use to develop this form of stimulation is the Mirror Neurons theory as described in the publications section.
The project will develop three main tools: visual stimulation for walking and chewing by video, walking pattern (GAIT) analysis by sensor technologie and an interactive daily planning tool. These tools will be tested in pilot sites in the Netherlands and in Spain, in peoples homes and in residential care settings.
