Conference “A new generation of elderly (care)”

At the end of 2019, our team participated in the fifth edition of the annual conference “A new generation of elderly (care)” in Nieuwegein. The conference was visited by 1,350 visitors. In addition to more than 300 elderly people, also carers, (district) nurses, doctors, students, administrators, managers, researchers and policy advisers were present. It was an inspirational day with a diverse range of speakers, discussion tables and inspiration sessions. One of the speakers was our managing director Martijn Vastenburg, who presented three of our R&D innovation projects.

At our stand we got the direct opportunity to get in contact with elderly and ask them about their opinion of our little robot friend “Maatje”, who really stole the show. We want to thank all the interested visitors and listeners and we hope to see you again next year!
