We have the technology to reinvent aging, so why aren’t we using it?

The medical alert button — which is supposed to summon an emergency response team to the apparently helpless wearer's home in mere minutes — has yet to really catch on, even 25 years after the fact. By recent estimates, only about 5% of the 7 million or so older adults who could benefit from a PERS (or personal emergency response system) have actually purchased one, even though they’re relatively inexpensive and quite often reimbursable. However, this individual market failure has done nothing to stymie the rise of — or enthusiasm for — gerontechnology. http://krui.info/we-have-the-technology-to-reinvent-aging-so-why-arent-we-using-it.php/

A roadmap for metabolic reprogramming of aging | KurzweilAI | Healthy Aging & Technology | Scoop.it

To survey previously uncharted territory, a team of researchers at UW-Madison has created an “atlas” that maps more than 1,500 unique landmarks within mitochondria that could provide clues to the metabolic connections between caloric restriction and aging.

 

The map, as well as the techniques used to create it, could lead to a better understanding of how cell metabolism is rewired in some cancers, age-related diseases and metabolic conditions such as diabetes.
