Gerotechnology by David C. Burdick

Book Description

Two "megatrends" of modern culture are rapid population aging and the inexorable advances in various technologies encountered by the population at large. This comprehensive volume explores the intersections of technology with aging and serves as both a primer and reference for educators, students, researchers, and practitioners. It includes concepts from the basics of gerotechnology - person-environment fit - to the core activity fields - computer and assistive devices and their practical applications - to models, or prototypes for technical development and its application to everyday life. Thought-provoking concluding chapters address ethical concerns for the future as well as offer new perspectives or context to ideas and innovations explored earlier.
