Meet our Partner RRD

The Research Team at Roessingh Rehabilitation Center

What is the main role of RRD in SmartWork?
Roessingh Research and Development (RRD) is one of the technical partners in the SmartWork project. Particularly, RRD is the main responsible for the development of the healthyMe smartphone application and the iCare service.

What was the idea behind your participation in this project?
The concept of the SmartWork project fits the RRD mission of “enabling people with a physical or cognitive disability to participate in society as independently and meaningfully as possible by smartly making use of new technology”. One of the most important ways to ensure that people participate in society is to guarantee that they can keep working for as long as possible, according to their possibilities and wishes.

What added value do you expect SmartWork will bring to your researcher center and its researchers? 
With the SmartWork project, the research team at RRD is deepening its knowledge on the application of digital health solutions to support health and wellbeing at work and at home. Furthermore, the SmartWork project gave us the opportunity to greatly upgrade our technology platform, specifically focusing on the re-design of the mobile application.
SmartWork is happy to share the news of the other projects that work in the area of AI for health and wellbeing in the workplace.
We are exploring the synergies between our actions and cooperate for better results and impact.
