Independent living with smart technologies

Independent living with smart technologies. After considering specific high-technology solutions, the text examines recent trends in other critical areas, such as basic assistive technologies, driving, transportation and community mobility, home modifications and design, and changing standards of elder care.

The increasing power and decreasing cost of computing is an unequivocal plus for the book's subject. Mann shows at length how there is massive promise for enhancing the quality of life for elderly and disabled people, via the intensive use of computerised technology.

The book delves into the many possibilities. Consider the ability for an electronic bracelet, say, to monitor its wearer's vital signs. It could summon assistance across a wireless network if the person suffered a heart attack or stroke.

Or take a person confined to a wheelchair. Now, some wheelchairs can climb stairs. Still pretty rare and costly. But this might change for the better. Also, the person might be able to control more of her home surroundings, like opening and closing doors or windows, via electronic means.

In perhaps the most extreme case, a person might be very paralysed. Here is perhaps the greatest possibility for lifestyle improvement, separate from medical advances on that person's condition.

Without understating the effort that has yet to happen, the book is a very promising glimpse of the future.
