Smart technologies for older people:
a systematic literature review of smart technologies that promote health and wellbeing of older people living at home

 

"Smart technologies are available to enhance safety, security and surveillance. Despite major investments by governments and industry partners to devise these technologies, their translation to use by older Australians has arguably been fragmented and uptake is still currently low. The roll out of the National Broadband Network offers a unique opportunity to link Australians with state-of-the-art technologies with the potential to improve health, well being and quality of life."
