INDUCT project invites people in the UK to take part in its research study

Tuesday 16 May 2017

The INDUCT project invites people in the UK, with and without dementia, to take part in a major international research study to explore how Everyday Technologies, from the simple kettle to self-service check-outs and ATMs, impact daily life. The study offers people aged 55+ the opportunity to get involved with dementia research until December 2017. It was officially launched on 16 May 2017, coinciding with “Dementia Awareness Week”.

The studies are planned to give people the chance to tell their stories about how they use technology in their day-to-day lives, both at home and out-and-about. Successes, niggles and frustrations - this is research about ordinary life.

By finding out more directly from UK communities, more can be understood about how to make places dementia friendly. Recent studies published by Anna Brorsson and colleagues are showing that this is possible. Stories of people living with dementia are helping to revolutionise grocery shops in Sweden and making the experience easier for everyone. Occupational therapist researchers, Sarah Wallcook from Cumbria and Sophie Gaber from London, are delivering this study with the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.
