MELVIN® at the fair in France

The French market for medical equipment was evaluated to be €20bn in 2015. It is a fast-growing market with a yearly increase of 5%. In addition, France has the same demographical challenges that Denmark faces with a growing percentage of elders. Automation and welfare technological solutions are therefore essential to the Senior Citizen politics in France. In 2016 a new law was passed, which highlights automation even more. Therefore, MELVIN® goes to France to introduce how welfare technology can, among other things, be used to promote automation to elders and give them enhanced quality of life.
