Technology and Aging : Selected Papers from the 2007 International Conference on Technology and Aging / edited by Alex Mihailidis [and others].

This publication presents articles on Aging-in-Place, Assistive Technology, Monitoring and Telehealth, Transportation and Mobility, and Design. The section on assistive technology (AT) represents arguably the most mature and generic aspect of technology and aging; except that AT can hardly be regard...
