IDA Challenge: Hacking the future toilet
Casecompetetion w. Pressalit - IT, software and engineering (UK)

Pressalit A/S is a Danish privately owned company with production facilities in Ry, Denmark. Since 1954, we have been designing and producing toilet seats of the highest quality. And since 1975, Pressalit has also been developing accessible bathrooms and height-adjustable kitchens for people with reduced mobility. 

Pressalit A/S  focus on creating the right formats and conditions for researching the trends and technologies of the future at their company. And it is their goal to create the right circumstances a so that talent and creativity can help inspire real companies and real people with real challenge. At this challenge Pressalit would like to invite you to an afternoon where you can put your competencies into play and connect with our people, who are looking after profiles just like you.


Challenge 1 

With a focus on people with disabilities and seniors in nursing homes, the challenge focuses on the person's physical and mental condition. Today, the patient's condition is not followed over time and their condition is unknown by their caregivers and families. Will it be possible to track an older person's condition through voice and sound algorithms and data processing? 


Challenge 2 

Hand hygiene is one of the most important factors in preventing infections, but children and the elderly often forget or choose not to wash their hands. The question is whether it is possible to increase focus and motivation through human-computer interaction (HCI)
