ORCATECH is an innovative research center, supported primarily by the NIA and closely integrated with the Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center at OHSU. We use and develop technologies that can assess home-based activities, providing millions of hours of real-world and real-time activity and health data. We focus on translating that data into actionable health and wellness outcomes, improving the lives of those who age independently at home.
The CART Initiative
CART uses in-home monitoring technologies and big data to analyze how adults can remain independent as they age, specifically those who are members of diverse communities. Learn more.
