About the Impact Theme Series
Our Longevity Explorers (hundreds of older adults with ages ranging from 60-95 years old) meet regularly to discuss topics at the intersection of aging and technology.
Among the many topics we discuss in these meetings, we have been exploring some specific themes which we think are going to be very important for older adults in the future, and which in our opinion are ripe for innovation. These make up our Impact Themes, and Medical Alerts & Home Sensor Systems is one of these themes.
In these discussions:
- We share how we do things today;
- We explore and critique existing products;
- We talk about challenges we have that we wish products could solve; and
- We dream up product concepts we wish someone like you would develop.
If you are developing products or services for older adults in the category of Medical Alerts & Home Sensor Systems, listen to the Longevity Explorer discussions on this page to get insights about how to develop better products and services for older adults.
