For older adults with mobility impairment, maintaining health and wellness while aging-in-place independently is crucial. Telepresence technology, such as Kubi, can be potentially beneficial for this target population to stay socially connected [1]. However, the Kubi robot is not specifically designed for older adults with mobility impairment. For this target ...

We explored the attitudes of older adults with mobility impairment towards using telepresence robots to understand their openness to adopting these technologies. Participants (n = 14) with self-reported mobility impairments completed questionnaires and an interview following demonstrative videos of two telepresence technologies (Kubi, Beam). In this paper, we present findings ...

Citation Count: 0

Health care related technology, or E-health, has the potential to lessen the impact of the growing aging population on the health care system and support older adults' preference for aging in place. However, for technologies to be adopted by older users, research is needed to understand older adults' unique health ...

Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Citation Count: 3

Although computer technology may be particularly useful for older adults (e.g., for communication and information access), they have been slower adopters than their younger counterparts. Perceptions about computers, such as perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, can pose barriers to acceptance and universal access (Davis in MIS Q 13(3):319---340, ...

August 2015 Proceedings, Part I, of the First International Conference on Human Aspects of IT for the Aged Population. Design for Aging - Volume 9193
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Citation Count: 0

Computer systems have the potential to assist older adults by supporting independence, enhancing social communication, and enabling healthcare activities. Yet older adults' adoption rates continue to lag behind younger and middle-aged adults. We report data from 249 older adult computer users 65---93 years of age that identify the details of ...

As the population ages, there is an increasing need for socio-emotional support for older adults. Therapeutic pets have been used to meet this need, but there are limitations in the practicality of placing pets in older adults' living environments. More recently therapeutic robots have been proposed as a solution. However, ...

Robots have potential to provide assistance to healthcare providers in daily caregiving tasks. The healthcare providers' acceptance of assistive robots will mediate the success or failure of implementation of robotic systems in care settings. It is essential to understand why and how providers would accept implementation of a robot in ...

Successful management of medications is critical to maintaining healthy and independent living for older adults. However, medication non-adherence is a common problem with a high risk for severe consequences, which can jeopardize older adults' chances to age in place. Well-designed robots assisting with medication management tasks could support older adults' ...

The aging population is growing rapidly and technology has great potential to meet older adults' healthcare needs. However, the technologies being developed must take into account older adults' needs and related interaction issues. This workshop explores interaction issues such as accepting, integrating, efficacy, sharing, and privacy for emerging health technologies, ...

Many older adults wish to remain in their own homes as they age [16]. However, challenges in performing home upkeep tasks threaten an older adult's ability to age in place. Even healthy independently living older adults experience challenges in maintaining their home [13]. Challenges with home tasks can be compensated ...

November 2010 Computers in Human Behavior: Volume 26 Issue 6, November, 2010
Publisher: Elsevier Science Publishers B. V.
Citation Count: 34

Older adults (n=113) participated in focus groups discussing their use of and attitudes about technology in the context of their home, work, and healthcare. Participants reported using a wide variety of technology items, particularly in their homes. Positive attitudes (i.e., likes) outnumbered negative attitudes (i.e., dislikes), suggesting that older adults ...
