Due to the demographic changes, the importance of geriatrics, with its holistic view on older and debilitated adults, is rapidly growing within the field of healthcare professionals and organizations. The Department for Geriatric medicine initiated the project "Innovative Medical Technology for Geriatrics" to address new medical technology solutions specifically for older adults and geriatric health issues. An interdisciplinary link between medicine and engineering sciences has been created through a close collaboration with the Chair of Medical Information Technology at RWTH Aachen University, the Helmholtz Institute for Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Internal Medicine and Geriatrics at the Franziskushospital Aachen. Currently, we attend to three distinct research fields: contactless monitoring, motion diagnostics and health care research.
