Longevity and financial pressure demand continuous changes in the health care sector. The new arrangement of the care intensity packages and the shortage of living accommodation ensure that elderly people continue to live independently for a longer period. This increases the demand for custom homes and home automation (wandering detection).
In custom homes, an efficient layout of the living space is important because often not many square metres are available. Our in-wall-sliding door saves a lot of space because the wall remains usable on two sides.
Developments in the field of electronic technology are focussed on having more people live at home with less manpower, while safety is maintained. For example, a chip has been designed for wandering detection of people with dementia. A system registers how long they stay in a room or when they slip outside. We adjust our doors and automation constantly to these developments. Our door automation registers this chip and the door remains closed, if necessary.
