- ENABLE Project - Enabling Technologies for People with Dementia
The ENABLE project, which concluded in 2004, was concerned with development and adaptation of technological products that people with dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) could use to carry out daily tasks which they previously were unable to do due to dementia. The selected products fell into three categories: (1) devices to support memory (time orientation, taking medicines etc.); (2) devices to provide pleasure and comfort (multimedia programs); and (3) devices to facilitate communication (a pre-programmable telephone). The project was funded by the European Union and carried out by partners in five countries (England, Ireland, Finland, Lithuania and Norway). It was coordinated by the Norwegian Centre for Dementia Research.
