Technology for Elderly & Gerontechnology Testing

As age increases, physical capabilities as well as self-care abilities gradually declines. Elderly people can use various types of assistive devices to help with daily activities and to maintain functional independence despite physical and cognitive decline.

Caregivers can base on the needs of the elderly, select the appropriate assistive devices, to enable the elder to live safely, independently and happily, thus improving self-confidence, self-image and self-care abilities.

The global elderly and disabled assistive devices market size was USD$23,009 million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach USD$35,599 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 5.5% from 2019 to 2026.

In order to truly live independently, an individual must have the ability to control his or her movement (basic mobility), avoid slips and falls, and be able to move around the neighborhood and larger community. Each of these requirements has its own challenges and, therefore, distinct sets of technologies that hold promise to address these challenges. The needed technologies can be grouped into three focus areas: assisted movement, rehabilitation, and monitoring and safety.
