Data resources

ORCATECH has a wide array of data resources available for further study.  We use and develop technologies that can assess everyday home-based activities. These technologies provide millions of hours of real-world and real-time activity and health data. 

We contribute our data to the National Institute on Aging's National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging (NACDA)
