GoIndependent enters Phase 2
The Technical Boards in Sweden and Japan, Vinnova and JST, jointly approved a continuation of the GoIndependent project. The original aim of securing independent living and social participation of senior citizens by developing energy rich and nutritious food which is succulent as well as pleasant to chew and safe to swallow remains. The scope has been broadened to include exercise programs and sensors, which also requires new participants. Experts on the effect of exercise (Dalarna University) and fall prevention programs (Swedish Judo Association) joins the project together with the corresponding Japanese experts from Tokyo University as well as experts on sensors for monitoring eating. One of the goals is to develop a food 3D-printer for home use and the company Cellink has joined the project. GoIndepentent will continue until 2022.
