Join us on April 4 and 5 for demos and tours as AGE-WELL and iDAPT Research host two special evenings

Tour a subterranean laboratory with a giant hydraulic motion simulator that can generate winter-like conditions such as ice and snow. Discover cutting-edge innovations designed to support healthy aging.

It’s all part of two special evenings on April 4 & 5 from 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM hosted by AGE-WELL, Canada’s Technology and Aging Network, and iDAPT Research. The events are part of Toronto’s first ever Health Innovation Week.File 2017-03-21, 10 57 34

Both evenings will feature technology demos, networking and a tour of one of AGE-WELL’s core facilities – the iDAPT Centre for Rehabilitation Research. AGE-WELL is based at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute – University Health Network, Canada’s largest academic rehabilitation research hospital.

We welcome members of the public to learn more about the AGE-WELL Network, and find out about the assistive robots, smart home systems, anti-collision wheelchairs and other innovations that AGE-WELL teams are creating to support healthy aging.

Come take a tour of Toronto Rehab’s state-of-the-art research facilities. See an underground lab with a massive motion simulator that can mimic everyday environmental challenges such as snow, ice and slopes, and where researchers can test people’s balance and mobility devices in real-life situations.

Guests will be guided through the iDAPT Center for Rehabilitation Research and Challenging Environment Assessment Labs in the basement and on the 12th floor including: Control room, StreetLab, WinterLab, FallsLab, DriverLab ,CareLab, and HomeLab.
