Exploring Markets for Assistive Technologies for the Elderly

Gendered Innovations

 

"The proportion of the world population over age 60 is projected to increase from 11 percent today to 22 percent by 2050—see charts below (data from United Nations, 2012). Population pyramids, especially in Europe, the U.S. and Canada, reveal that the proportion of the elderly is increasing while that of young people is shrinking. As the population ages, more people will need care. At the same time, fewer people will be available to provide and pay for the patient-centered care characteristic of Western societies today. With fewer people available to provide care, new solutions will be needed. In recent years, researchers have developed technologies to assist in elder care (Peterson et al., 2012; Broekens et al., 2009)."
