Accessibility and Welfare Technology. Ballast tests and enhances accessibility for all together with private businesses and public institutions. We design and implement welfare technology for use in the health education sector targeting inclusion and hightned quality of life for the elderly.
Ballast specialises in accessibility, inclusion and welfare technology. We offer digital and physical accessibility tests to private businesses and public institutions with the aim of securing inclusion for all regardless of age and physical abilities. We guarantee that our customers subsequently meet the EU standards.
Ballast drives projects ensuring that professionals across the health sector are familiar with the conditions of the elderly citizens they work with, whom experience loss of hearing, vision and other sensory impairments.
Our products include digital simulations through the use of AR/VR technology and games. This offers health professionals and others first-hand physical insights into living with diminishing sensory functions. Our aim for applying digital and analog simulations is to foster understanding and empathy with the elderly in the health sector and beyond.
Ballast complies with the Sustainable Development Goals’ overall principle of universality and more specifically with SDGs focused on health, equal access and opportunities, and partnerships.
Ballast was founded in 2016 by the three design engineers Michala Mathiesen, Christine Svensson and Helle Vedø and by today employs three staffs.
