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.
