Georgia Tech’s HomeLab initiative provides the capability to conduct in-home research that supports the development of innovative technologies that promote health, wellness, and independence for older adults. HomeLab brings together a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers and a community of older adults interested in participating in research.
HomeLab clients gain access to a wide variety of laboratory and in-home testing resources, including a network of older adult participants and a team of researchers with expertise to evaluate products designed for older adults living at home. HomeLab provides an independent testing facility capable of evaluating the safety, efficacy, effectiveness, usability, and accessibility of products that promote independent living.
HomeLab participants take part in research that answers important questions about aging. Participants may also have the chance to use new products and provide feedback that influences the design of those products. Participants are compensated for their time.
