Tech to improve the lives of an aging population

Techstination feature for Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    There’s a lot of innovation taking place…much of it on display at this year’s Consumer Electronics show…when it comes to tech designed to improve the lives of an aging population.   CTA Foundation Executive Director Steve Ewell…

“So I look at it as yes, it’s the good thing to do.  But quite frankly when I’m having conversations with a lot of these businesses, it’s the right business move as well.”

In categories like hearing assistance…mobility and health monitoring…there’s a whole lot of innovation.  And AARP StartUp Engagement VP Rick Robinson says it is coming from companies big and small..

“We’re excited by some of the moves of some of the larger companies, but even more so, by the some of the startups who we’re working with who are really shaking things up in this space.”

Ewell and Robinson spoke on the What’s Next…Living Longer, Better, Smarter podcast….which you can find at www.maryfurlong.com.
