HOLGER DANSKE IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR SENIORS
Many elderly people find it hard to keep their balance for various reasons. This causes unnecessary falls and injuries. Can anything be done to alleviate this? Hans Christian Falkenberg-Hansen believes so, and to that end, he has designed a very special robot. The robot is called Holger Danske (named after the mythical Viking warrior who will rise and defend Denmark in times of trouble) and is a so-called ‘wearable’, an outer skeleton that supports the person in motion so as to avoid falls. It will make seniors feel safer in their everyday surroundings and thus improve their quality of life.

HOLGER DANSKE SKAL GIVE ÆLDRE MERE LIVSKVALITET
Flere ældre har svært ved at holde balancen af forskellige årsager. Det medfører unødige fald med skader til følge. Kan man gøre noget for at afhjælpe dette? Det mener Hans Christian Falkenberg-Hansen, der har designet en helt særlig robot. Robotten hedder Holger Danske og er en såkaldt wearable i skikkelse af et ydre skelet, der støtter personen under bevægelse, så man undgår at falde. Det vil give den ældre mere tryghed i hverdagen og dermed bedre livskvalitet.
