CATCH researchers invite you to a free workshop on technologies for people with memory problems

CATCH researchers are running a free day workshop exploring the possibility for assistive technologies to support those with memory problems in their day-to-day lives. The workshop will run on the 11th April, 2016, at the Mappin Hall (Mappin Building, Mappin Street, Sheffield S1 3JD), from 10am to 3pm, and a buffet lunch will be provided.  Workshop participants will have a chance to try out a range of cutting edge technologies currently being developed and tested by CATCH researchers, as well as our collaborators from Sheffield Robotics and Sheffield City Wide Care Alarms. The technologies on display will include Zeno, ‘the most lifelike robot in the world’, and an innovative voice-activated home control system – as well as a range of other technologies that are useful or fun to use.

If you are living with memory problems, or are involved in any way in supporting people with memory loss, we would be delighted if you would join us to try these technologies and tell us what you think. To register for this event, please contact Dr. Tim Gomersall (tel: 0114 2220826 / email: or Laura Murray (tel: 0114 2221726 / email:
