As our population ages, the demand for health care services and products for older adults is increasing. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2050 there will be more people over age 65 than under 18 years old in America which means that the senior population is growing faster than any other segment of society.

As the population of older adults grows, so does the number of seniors living alone and in need of help that they can’t always get.

Alberto Espay - Alzheimer’s Amyloid Theory Into Question

8/6/2021
Amyloid-Beta And Alzheimer's Disease - Amyloid beta is a protein fragment that's been shown to play an important role in Alzheimer’s disease.

As these proteins clump together, they start to interfere and destroy neurons so research involving this protein has been intense; however, it seems as though there are more questions than answers when it comes to how amyloids cause...

Older adults are often left out of the design process when new technologies are created. This leaves them with a less than optimal experience, and can even be dangerous to their health.
