Living Lab

The Living Lab, located at St. Peter’s Hospital in Hamilton, provides a real-life environment where our team of geriatricians, research scientists, and cross-disciplinary researchers work together with patients, families and community/industry partners to co-create innovative solutions that enhance patient care and quality of life.

Our Living Lab offers a dynamic and controlled environment where product and innovation testing and evaluation happens seamlessly. Accessed through the GERAS Centre for Aging Research, the Living Lab enables industry and innovators to rapidly develop prototyping, which ultimately means product innovations can have a positive impact on patient care more quickly. 

Part of Hamilton Health Sciences and affiliated with McMaster University, the GERAS Centre for Aging Research is uniquely positioned in the innovation eco-system. Its strong clinical leadership and wide network of stakeholders makes it a sought-after partner for global healthcare innovators.

Here are just a few examples of our industry partnerships.
