More on TIDAL N+

TIDAL stands for Transformative Innovation in the delivery of Assisted Living Products and Services.

Our purpose is to improve the quality of Assistive Technologies (AT) and hence the lives of the people who use them. Our vision is for innovative, sustainable and equitable AT, both physical and digital.

To achieve this, we’re building a transdisciplinary network - including designers, ergonomists, engineers, physical scientists and AI specialists, alongside entrepreneurs, innovations and manufacturers, as well as AT users, clinical and social care practitioners and commissioners. Through this network we will generate novel design, engineering and technological advances that will empower disabled people, older people and carers through accessible and local solutions.
