New Ambient Assisted Living Research Initiative
Smart Ambient Assisted Living (SAAL) is a community of researchers whose aim is to create innovative, person-centered, technological solutions for the effective management of Health and Wellness in the home and community. To ensure that the systems, devices and services, we develop, will meet the social and health needs of users and will be effective in the management of their health and wellness, we have formed SAAL: a multi-disciplinary team of general practitioners, gerontologists, physicians & occupational therapists, electrical, electronic, mechanical, computer & civil engineers, behavioral scientists, computer scientists and web technologists, each drawn from our three partner institutions: NUI Galway, Georgia Tech Ireland and the University of Limerick. SAAL’s goal is to produce world-class research in the field of AAL and to provide an effective mechanism for the translation of these systems, devices and services into commercial products.
