More than 100 visitors during the Doors Open Day

LongLeif GaPa gGmbH and the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) opened the doors of the Geriatronics Research Center in Garmisch-Partenkirchen to the public on Saturday 08. October from 10:00 to 16:00. We had more than 100 visitors in six tours during the day. Among them were Garmisch-Partenkirchen Mayoress Elisabeth Koch and MdL Harald Kühn as well as members of the press. This great success is the result of teamwork within the Geriatronics team and with LongLeif and Friends of Geriatronics. We gathered for you some of the best moments in the gallery below.

Geriatronics Symposium

The Geriatronics-Summit aims to bring to light the current and envisioned robotic solutions in the context of Geriatronics1 and to raise awareness among policy-makers with respect to corresponding technology. The event aims at addressing the following questions:

  • How to address through Geriatronics the increasing shortage and geographic disparities of care providers and the overburdened health care?  
  • How robotics and AI can enhance independence, mobility, self-determination, and health for the elderly for as long as possible?
  • What are the rules of autonomy? How to address moral, ethical and cultural, and/or personal challenges and dilemmas for Geriatronics?
