Start of “Self-determined Living”

February 2011

  • The portal, which was developed by Deutsche Telekom and Fränkel, had been undergoing acceptance and functionality tests in the “innovation house” at 20, Saint-Diè-Straße in Friedrichshafen since February 2011.

  • The service allows users to live more independently and safely in their own homes for a longer time, even in old age.

  • Through a touch-screen terminal at home, participants can make use of a range of services, including caretaker services, a pharmacy delivery service, delivery services for meals or groceries and information about public transportation.

  • Via videophone, they are also able to maintain social contact with residents in the innovation house.

  • The project was successfully completed at the end of January 2012.
