IO1 – A2: Identification of 3D printing technologies to be used in Alzheimer and elderly context

Objectives
  • To prevent and awareness of Alzheimer and dementia and the early onset of the diseases.
  • To raise awareness and draw attention to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia at local, national and international level.
  • To increase the quality of the educational and caregiving process of staff working with people with Alzheimer and elderly people with dementia.
  • To provide proper tools to caregivers and staff members.
  • To create an activity tools for local and Europe-wide usage to assist in the improvement of memory in Alzheimer’s patients and those with early onset dementia. 
  • To increase the quality of the adult inclusive education in the countries involved.
  • To increase the cooperation among European different entities working in field of disabilities, and technology development.
  • To establish cooperation and partnership at the European level.
  • To develop and to promote competencies related to the technology for staff and organizations working with people with Alzheimer and elderly with dementia.
  • To promote a European up-skills pathway, carried out in different countries for using 3D Printing technology in different kind of work.
  • To increase the quality of the education of people with those diseases for basic skills important for their life.

  • To promote a lifelong upgrade of competences by staff and educators working as in the health as in the technological field.
Activities
  • To develop a guideline for caregivers to make them aware about the use of 3D Printing technology.
  • To develop a set of memory exercises developed with 3DP for people with Alzheimer and dementia to help them to recover the loss of memory.
  • To develop web platform to collect exercises created with 3DP to be used with people with Alzheimer and dementia.
  • To realise a training for experts, caregivers and other staff to test the exercises realised and give to them the skills in using 3D printing technology.
  • To develop a therapy guide to assist in the improvement of memory in Alzheimer’s patients and those with dementia.
Results
  • A guideline for caregivers about the use of 3D Printing.
  • A set of memory exercises created with 3DP for helping people with Alzheimer and elderly people with dementia.
  • A web platform to collect exercises created with 3DP to be used with people with Alzheimer and dementia.
  • A Training for experts, caregivers and other staff involved in the work with people with Alzheimer and elderly people with dementia.
