About this Item


  • Technology and Aging: Updates


  • Nina Silverberg and Vijeth Iyengar discussed the findings of the Task Force on Research and Development for Technology to Support Aging Adults. The task force was established under the White House National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology to examine the potential of technology to maximize independence for older Americans by sustaining health, independence and opportunities for social engagement. In early March, this task force released a report that identified a range of emerging technologies that have significant potential to assist older adults. The report identified six primary functional capabilities as being critical to individuals who wish to maintain their independence as they age and for which technology may have a positive impact: key activities of independent living, cognition, communication and social connectivity, personal mobility, transportation, and access to healthcare.
