The physical node in Umeå is divided into two separate, but connected sites, that can be used for exploring and testing best practises and solutions within the area of telemedicine both in health care and in home environment. The information is aimed at different target groups using telemedicine and e-health solutions. Among the usual visitors are health care professionals, companies, researchers, students, and senior citizens with their family members and/or caretakers.

The center functions as a demonstration environment which can be used for education, training and technical demonstration purposes. Through the center, we also provide consultation to individuals and oganisations for identifying the right technologies for their needs, as well as support the usage of these technologies.

The home environment builds on smart homes adaptive systems for older adults and knowledge-based support systems for the medical domain.  This home environment serves as a living laboratory environment for designing and developing a range of different knowledge-based applications intended to be deployed as part of a holistic approach to ambient assisted living. The objects in this home environment are embedded with sensors, actuators, physical interfaces and ambient displays.  Some of the mock-up services include evaluation of physical activities, self-improvement games, etc.
