Using Technology to Successfully Solve the Problems of the Aging
Technology is now making a huge push into home health care. New markets are emerging as the traditional “aging in place” market continues to grow. New assistive technologies are being developed that will have an impact as well: communication devices, health and wellness monitoring, home safety and security. Product design must take in to account user capability, medical device regulations, and technology adoption issues. This talk with address the major issues for new devices in the home health and aging in place market. It will include resources, driving forces and latest trends for new technology development.

SensorsCon 2014 on March 6, 2014
Trends in Medical Devices/Sensors
Low cost sensors are revolutionizing medical, home health, and fitness devices. Walt Maclay will show how these devices are benefiting from the ongoing development of low-cost high-volume sensors. He will describe some of the devices recently made possible by advances in sensor technology and the impact on health, fitness, and personal autonomy that they may bring.
