This show flat was specifically designed with elderly people in mind. It is fitted out with technical equipment to help those with physical disabilities carry out daily life activities. A particular feature is a mobile device developed especially for this project. It is a tray on rails affixed to the ceiling which allows things that are placed on top of it to be moved in both a horizontal and vertical direction without requiring any exertion of strength.
