‘Healthy ageing’ solutions sought in tender published by European health care providers

15 October 2014

Six health care purchasing bodies from five European countries have published a competitive tender, inviting companies to propose products and services that will aid the elderly. The solutions sought include a fall detection and alert system; a treadmill for rehabilitation and analysis of walking disorders; a walking course for preventing falls and maintaining independence; a bed thermoregulation system; and a chair enabling users to maintain independence, reducing effort for aides.

Notice of the competitive tender was published in the European Union Official Journal on 30 September 2014 by the organisation RESAH, coordinator of the HAPPI project (Healthy Ageing - Public Procurement of Innovation). The specifications are available in three languages: English, Italian and French. Bids can be addressed in any of these three languages, however the application documents must be provided in French only.

A Helpdesk in English and Italian has been created to support bidders with the application process, especially small and medium enterprises. The helpdesk provides information on how to create an account and download the HAPPI tender documents, how to ask a question on the FAQ page, as well as information on how to upload an offer to the platform.
