National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) 2009
The volume illuminates, from a psychological, medical and engineering perspective, the way technology can ease the transition from middle-aged to advanced age and increase day-to-day competency. Technology that lends flexible support can make a contribution to the training of mental capacities, the support of day-to-day competencies and the monitoring of vital functions. Modern technology can reduce both health costs and the costs for social security as well as create growth potential.
