Technology and ageing
The dramatic increase in the population of older people brings its challenges to societies. Technological advances have contributed to improving the lives of elderly citizens in numerous ways. Technology offers mechanisms to overcome many of the deficiencies that come with ageing, but we need to carefully consider the human interface with these new technologies.
MICRA affiliated researchers focus on the development of technology to assist older people and how technology can advance our understanding of ageing, but also on the accessibility of this technology.
This project aims to use mobile technology to create solutions that can help older adults to become more active in everyday life.
MoveCare develops and field tests an innovative multi-actor platform that supports the independent living of older people at home
