About project

3D4elderly is a project aimed to create innovative learning pathways that increase the quality of the work of caregivers and staff members dealing with people with Alzheimer and elderly people with dementia and also to raise the quality of the life of the patients by using 3D technology.

Project objectives

To achieve the goals of the project, the consortium has defined the following intellectual outputs:
• IO1: A guideline for caregivers about the use of 3D Printing.
• IO2: A set of memory exercises created with 3DP for helping people with Alzheimer and elderly people with dementia.
• IO3: A web platform to collect exercises created with 3DP to be used with people with Alzheimer and dementia.
• IO5: Creation of a methodological guideline (therapy guide) to assist in the improvement of memory in Alzheimer’s patients and those with early-onset dementia accessible to all Alzheimer centers.
