New research published into the impacts of new and emerging assistive technologies for ageing and disabled housing
“The impacts of new and emerging assistive technologies for ageing and disabled housing” was published in December 2021. This research focused on assistive technologies and how important these technologies are to assist older people in all aspects of life.
Some of the key findings in this research include Smart Home Assistive Technology (AT) having the potential to improve quality-of-life, reduce reliance on care and reduce the cost of care for older people, and it may also indirectly support a range of ongoing benefits, including extended independent living, smart home energy efficiency, safety and security, physical and mental activity and healthcare monitoring. More detailed findings can be found in the full research paper.
The Community Care Smart Assistive Technology Collaborative would like to congratulate the authors of the paper, Catherine Bridge, Fredrick Zmudzki, Tracy Huang, Ceridwen Owen and Debbie Faulkner for their vital research.
