Health and Welfare
Our health and future welfare depends on good technological and organisational solutions that work in tandem with the people. Norut analyzes various health and welfare models and technological solutions. We develop games and smart solutions for fitness, activity and monitoring of disease. We research how technology affects the everyday lives of both health care professionals and patients. We at Norut are thinking about e-health and e-welfare, but we know that technology is only part of the solution.
