Don't miss out on the exclusive "Pitt Healthy Home Laboratory Tour" at the University of Pittsburgh, where a multidisciplinary team of researchers is revolutionizing the concept of aging in place. Witness how the integration of healthcare and technology can transform the way seniors live independently, safely, and comfortably in their own homes.

Join us on this immersive tour and explore the 105-year-old Pittsburgh home (257 Oakland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213), a real-life laboratory for testing state-of-the-art solutions, interventions, and technologies, designed to address the common issues faced by seniors in their homes.

Witness firsthand the innovative technologies being developed, including environmental hazard sensors, smart home technology, and stair-climbing assistance devices. Learn how these advancements can not only automate home environments but also provide alerts to healthcare providers, caregivers, and family members, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of seniors living at home.

As the number of seniors opting to age in place increases, the Pitt Healthy Home Lab is dedicated to creating scalable and practical solutions to support them. The tour will also shed light on the lab's ongoing efforts to commercialize their technologies, build evidence for positive outcomes, and collaborate with Medicare and Medicaid to ensure coverage for these cutting-edge solutions.
