Biomedical Science & Research Journals | Smart Advances in Healthcare for Geriatric Patients

Biomedical science is recognizing the value and importance of applications utilizing SMART technologies in the care and treatment of our aging population. Improved health and social care over recent years has increased life expectancy worldwide. As a result, nearly 7% of the world’s population is now over 65 years of age. The proportion of older people is predicted to rise approximately 20% by 2050 worldwide [1]. The increasing number and proportion of older adults requires a greater focus on policies and resources to meet the needs of this growing global population. Smart home technologies encourage and allow aging individuals to live longer in their own homes.

When we speak of this technology, SMART stands for Self- Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. Recent clinical research [2-5] has identified the value and benefits of wearable SMART technology for various populations raising the question as to whether there may be beneficial use with individuals in treatment for health-related conditions. Wearable SMART technology employs digital technologies to collect health data from individuals in one location, such as a patient’s home, and electronically transmits the information to healthcare providers in a different location like a primary health care center for assessment, monitoring and compliance [3].
