Demographic change is advancing inexorably. The number of people in need of care is growing rapidly, while at the same time there is already a shortage of several thousand caregivers to provide adequate, needs-based nursing care. Intelligent assistance systems can make a contribution to solving this problem. In this article, diverse assistance systems from the areas of nursing care, health care, rehabilitation and training, and mobility are presented as examples. These different components, equipped with the appropriate sensors, data transmission units and interfaces, can all be integrated into a system platform and thus form a comprehensive intelligent, digital assistance system or a mobile diagnosis and therapy platform.
