Age-assisting technologies to touch and try out

In June 2022, the Geriatric Health Centers Graz, the human technology cluster and other partners opened a showroom in Haus Esther in Graz, in which a large number of digital and physical helpers can be tried out on site in peace and quiet.

End users can familiarize themselves with the tools and finally decide for – or against – them. Conversely, manufacturers of age-assisting technologies receive valuable information about the potential for improvement of their product directly from their target group.

The Human Technology Styria Cluster and that GGZ was able to persuade a number of already very successful start-ups to subject their innovations to a reality check by the seniors. 

Among them are:


Emma offers assistance in various areas of life for older people to maintain their independence in their own four walls. Emma organizes everyday life and creates feel-good time and security for the whole family.
