ASSIST: Technology for the Elderly


There is a very wide range of promising technological innovations to assist the elderly and physically handicapped that can dramatically reduce health care costs, while substantially increasing the quality of life for many in our society. To be truly effective, the support should include not only the elderly themselves, but their entire support network, including friends, family, caregivers, health care professionals, and the like. Thus, it is likely that fully integrated supportive environments for the elderly will encompass many of the current application and research areas of computer science, including local and remote networking, computer interfaces and interaction models, computer vision, robotics, distributed sensor networks, privacy issues, etc.
