Technological solutions to care for an aging population in rural areas
SHORT ABSTRACT OF THE TALK
The aging of the population is a proven fact in a large number of developed countries. This poses a large number of challenges that must be addressed: social, economic and non-technological. This conference focuses on the problems posed by the aging of the population, particularly in areas with low population density and away from large urban centers. Starting from a multidisciplinary perspective that includes social, economic and health aspects, technological solutions are proposed that aim to improve the quality of life of the elderly population in these areas.
