The study published in Informatics for Health and Social Care included ten women with an average age of 65 years.
“Our findings that younger,
older adult women who are more active prefer wearable sensors for themselves and smart home sensors for their parents is important to tailoring technology research for independent ageing,” said Blaine Reeder, the lead author of the study.
