pdf-format:
Document 1.pdf (30 KB)


Abstract

The aging demographic being experienced by all western countries has significant impact on health care utilization as well as the ability to remain in independent living situations. Chronic medical conditions and functional disability impair older adults’ ability to remain independent. Ambient assisted living technologies may help less the burden of disability and increase the likelihood of older adults remaining independent into their later years.
