|ORCATECH is comprised of several key resources which further both the technology and clinical aspects of aging research.|
|Point of Care Lab (POCL)
|Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center
|The Point of Care Laboratory is located in OHSU's Center for Health & Healing on the 13th floor. The space is designed to simulate an apartment and is outfitted with motion sensors, a user computer and a sensor computer in addition to new technologies that are being tested. All technologies that get deployed in ORCATECH studies are tested in this space prior to being released to homes of our participants.||The Layton center serves as the clinical core of ORCATECH. Beginning in 1989, the Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center has been dedicated to addressing this major public health problem by providing an integrated program of diagnosis, treatment and research.|
|ORCATECH Living Laboratory
Technical & Clinical Testbed
|The ORCATECH Living Laboratory (OLL) is a population of community-dwelling seniors who have agreed to participate on an ongoing basis in research on technology-based health monitoring, intervention, and support of independent aging. The Living Lab is used to explore technologies to support independent living, to assess new behavioral markers, and to evaluate approaches for assessing neurological and other relevant health changes, all in the participant's home.|
