GoldenAge is a Swiss organisation founded in 2015 that develops, commercializes and support products and services for elderly. The main product, the Amigo tablet, is developed for the Swiss and French market in co-creation with the Dutch organisation Compaan.
It is our belief that new information technologies can be adopted by all generations. With our products and services, we aim to bridge the digital divide gap that prevents many senior citizens from staying in touch with their friends and family, particularly the younger generation. We are convinced that by fostering more widespread adoption of new communication tools, and by facilitating family and caretakers to keep an eye, in a non-intrusive manner, on their loved ones, we can contribute to the well-being of the older generation, its quality of life, its ability to stay at home for longer, and ultimately to its happiness. Very easy to use, the Amigo tablet is meant for those who do not feel at ease with computers. Video calls, emails, calendars, photos and videos, games – the Amigo offers senior citizens a wide choice of functions that help them stay in touch with their loved ones, and promotes stronger social ties with friends and family. In addition, through the AmigoClub portal, relatives, caregivers and outside home services can customize Amigo functions, offering a wide variety of relevant and valuable services, tailored for each individual user.
Competences and role in the project: Management of field trial in Switzerland and participating in bringing the solution to the market.
