Tyndall Manchester investigates the impact of digital services for health and wellbeing in the home
14 March 2022
Dr. Raphael Tarpani has been enrolled as Research Assistant to investigate the impacts and circularity of digital services at independent living schemes and the NHS in the UK.
Researchers from several UK universities are involved in the project "Environmental impacts of digital services for health and wellbeing in the home". The Tyndall Centre participants, Dr Raphael Tarpani and Dr Alejandro Gallego Schmid, will evaluate the environmental impacts of the digital system for health and well-being installed at three different independent living schemes in the UK, and will provide recommendations to increase the circularity and sustainability of the electronic devices used for the service. The findings will be discussed among the interdisciplinary research team members and stakeholders of the healthcare sector(such as the NHS) in order to provide recommendations for better eHealth service utilisation.
The project's findings will be also disseminated among various stakeholders in the UK and abroad, with the goal of increasing the sustainability of eHealth services.
