In collaboration between University of Technology Eindhoven and care organization Pleyade we have established the Pleyade Innovation Team (PIT). This is a team of talented researchers, designers, technologists, care professionals and experience to design novel technology for people living with dementia. See below who are members of the team.
The Discover Dementia concept is for example developed in collaboration with this team. We ensure with the team that for every design decision made in projects, people with dementia and/or their surrounding network are involved and included. For the VITA pillow for example, we have designed the foam shape, the texture of the fabric, the graphic and material of the print to make sure all the details of a product work well together to ensure an optional experience for people living with dementia.
