Aging actively, gracefully, and independently is a common goal for seniors today. Technology can provide the most support to help older adults achieve this goal. Life enhancing technology for seniors includes simple, easy-to-use apps on smart phones, wearables, voice and motion-activated sensors, robotics, voice and video communication, and even virtual reality simulation devices. The active aging industry is continuously innovating and introducing new ways for seniors to stay safe, active, and connected. In fact, a CNBC news report says that the active-aging industry in the U.S. — which includes safety and smart-living technologies, health and remote care, and wellness and fitness technologies — is expected to triple in the next three years, to nearly $30 billion.
