Currently, the Information and Communication Technologies (ITC) are part of our everyday life and are integrated with our culture. Hence, by enhancing our physical and mental capabilities, the ICT are also contributing to social development and the emergence of new values.
For this reason, LST promotes the incorporation of technologies in a wide range of formats to guarantee an improvement in the quality of life of the final users: patients and people with or without a disability.
Wearable devices, Smart appliances, Smart TVs, desktops and portable devices like applications and games help us to create novel scenarios where users can experience positive emotions.
One of the most important goals of LST is to offer real advantages which facilitate and add value to the everyday task of health professionals and care providers. We work thinking that usability guarantees more simple and intuitive tools for this challenge.
We work hand in hand with suppliers, potential clients and customers, to generate positive experiences through original technological environments.
Hospital solutions, workstations, and portable devices like services, games and applications, are some of the lines of research and development to improve the health sector.
With the fast evolution of knowledge and the incorporation of technologies in all aspects of life, we are exposed to a permanent transformation of social, cultural and economics structures.
The health sector is in a permanent revolutionary change due to the ICTs. Without a doubt, the technological development is an answer to the demands of improving the quality of life and the health care.
Offering and searching for original technological solutions to further the work of professionals and users who decide to incorporate them, is a central aim for LST. New solutions, tests beds, new modes of interaction, living labs and new work methodologies are the way to achieve our goal.
