The paper describes the program ‘eHealth – Enhancing Mobility with Aging’, an interdisciplinary research project at RWTH Aachen University. The program started in January 2009 as part of the Human Technology Centre, a newly established project house, funded by the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments. The program aims at designing adaptive immersive interfaces for personal healthcare systems and develops novel, integrative prototypes for the design of user-centered healthcare systems. This includes new concepts of electronic monitoring systems within ambient living environments, suited to support persons individually (according to user profiles), adaptively (according to the course of disease) and sensitively (according to living conditions).
