What is VERVE?

VERVE is a research project that aims to develop new technologies to support the treatment of people who are at risk of social exclusion, either because of fear and apathy associated with ageing, or because of a neurological disorder.

What are we doing?

The VERVE research project is summarised in the diagram to the left. We are seeking to investigate how three specific User Needs can be met by applying advances in Science & Technology through a number of specific Scenarios.

User Needs – the requirement to alleviate fear, apathy and anxiety-related disorders in elderly and vulnerable patients
Science and Technology – the scientific techniques and computer technologies that can be applied to address the user need
Scenarios – the tools and games that comprise the tangible outputs of the VERVE research programme
