Assisted Living Systems: Human Factors Considerations

pdf-format:
Dokument 1.pdf (16 KB)


Abstract

Although many older adults wish to live independently, remaining in their own homes as long as possible, they may face obstacles such as transportation issues, social isolation, upkeep of the home, and increasing in-home care costs, which prevent them from doing so. The use of technology within the home, through technology-based assisted living systems, has the potential to alleviate some of these obstacles. Incorporating human factors principles to maximize safety, efficiency, and usability is key to the development of these systems.
