Technology keeps you young

Medical alarms - the future of ageing

Today, let’s face it, technology is sexy. Not only are the designs sleek, lux and desirable, but by wearing them, or displaying them in our homes, we are saying we are current and in touch.

Up until recently, many older users of health technology and medical alarm devices complain about feelings of frustration as the devices were so foreign and difficult to use, or of feeling branded as old by being forced to wear and use large, skin-coloured hearing aids or bulky health monitors. With these health aids medical alarms, there was little consideration about comfort, aesthetics or usability. Now that we are seeing more people choosing to age in their own homes, the health tech and medical alarm market has exploded.

The industry as a whole is seeing designs shift to accommodate this new consumer group.

As a result, medical alarm technology solutions are engineered for longevity, have greater usability, and are more desirable than ever before. New product categories are emerging to make life easier and safer for users. It’s a recognition that aging should be functional and enjoyable.

With power in numbers, and led by a boomer generation who have changed every demographic they have moved through, they are being listened to.
