After some weeks with MyMate prototype running in the elderly care centre “Les Boqueres” (Altea, Spain), Whiteloop, Brainstorm and Innovatec had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in July with the centre´s personnel and some of the volunteers who were involved in the first group of users testing the platform.

The reactions and feedback provided by the users were overwhelmingly positive and in some cases confirmed the benefits that we expected the system could provide to end- users. Albeit, at the beginning some of the users were a bit sceptical, the bonding created among volunteers and their mates after some weeks was outstanding.

After the summer break, the second part of the validation will resume until mid-October where all the results will be collected and analysed.
