NEX Project - Research Study with Older Adults

Exploring the Potential of Technology to Support Older Adults to Live Independently at Home

We are looking for older adults to take part in a research study

This study will involve testing a combination of three technology types, over a 10-week period, in your own home.

These technologies include a voice activated assistant (Alexa), a smartwatch and ambient sensors.

  • Healthy older adults (aged 60 years or older)
  • Lives alone in the greater Dublin area or surrounding counties
  • Is a smartphone user and has a broadband connection at home
