AMIA ... Annual Symposium Proceedings. AMIA Symposium 2006: 935



This study aim is to explore the perceptions of seniors in regard to "smart home" technology aiming to improve their quality of life and/or monitor their health status. A total of 15 older adults participated in three focus groups. Participants had a positive attitude towards these technologies and identified application areas such as emergency help, detection of falls, monitoring of physiological parameters. Concerns were expressed about privacy and the need for tailored training.
