INNOVATING for health and wellbeing
Ulster University has a campus at Jordanstown in Newtownabbey, a major urban area on the outskirts of north Belfast that is separated from the city by the M2 motorway. Through the participation of the university in the ProFit project – in research and testing – a collaboration was developed with Newtownabbey Council which eventually led to the installation of a mini-FieldLab to include the Yalp Memo which won the international ProFit design competition.
The interactive equipment is located along the shores of Belfast Lough close to the university within the Jordanstown Loughshore Park next to an existing playground.
Furthermore the park has an open grass area, a caravan park, an area for small outdoor concerts and a walking path with outdoor gym equipment.
