2014-05-14 GiraffPlus System Successfully Redeployed

The life conditions of elderly people may change during the course of a project. While not being part of the GiraffPlus risk and contingency plan, one of the primary users in Sweden has moved from a house to a smaller apartment on short notice. Aiming at providing adaptive support to changing individual needs, the GiraffPlus system has been successfully redeployed in a new location within 18 days from when the project was first informed about the upcoming move. Needless to say, quick reaction and adaptive support also in this aspect should be something to strive for when developing products to address challenges with an aging society.
