Devices include traditional disability devices such as hearing aids, wheelchairs, and visual aids, as well as advanced solutions that aid in enabling disabled persons to lead more positive lives through increased control, security, and social participation. Technological advances have resulted in interdisciplinary research involving cognitive science, IT, communications, biotechnology and nanotechnology to develop advanced solutions that are intelligent and smart to improve quality of life for disabled and elderly patients. The disabled and elderly assistive technologies is being driven by rising elderly population, rising healthcare costs, and advances in technology. The growth in elderly population is straining healthcare systems across the world. Home-based care is being actively practiced as an alternative to prolonged hospital stays. Technological advances have enabled assistive devices to be connected to healthcare networks, and is aiding the shift to home-based care. Moreover, home-based care enables the patients to be independent and manage their daily routines. The multiple devices and solutions are enabling healthcare providers to remotely monitor senior and disabled persons and act when necessary. Moreover, assistive devices are becoming smart and can automatically trigger alarms to emergency services and/or caregivers in case of adverse events. Communication aids account for the largest share of the assistive devices market owing to the widespread prevalence of hearing and vision disabilities. Hearing and vision are among the first liabilities during aging, and as such account for a high share of disabilities in elderly population. Cognitive disabilities such as dementia are also increasing in prevalence but the detection rate and the usage of aids for managing dementia are relatively low, especially in developing countries. The major challenges for the adoption of disabled and elderly assistive technologies lies in the cost of advanced devices and technologies. Moreover, the devices also face the challenge of getting approval from insurance companies and government healthcare programs. Price pressures from healthcare management firms as well as patient groups also pose a challenge for the adoption of the devices.
