From a high-tech home system that can detect dementia to an anti-collision powered wheelchair, the article highlights some of the new technologies and systems being developed by AGE-WELL researchers.
AGE-WELL’s “significant training component” is also described. There is a unique new program involving more than 150 trainees. It exposes trainees to a transdisciplinary approach that will equip them to excel in the emerging field of technology and aging.
Written by Althea Blackburn-Evans, the article is called “Odds are you will live past 100: Alex Mihailidis wants to make sure longer lifespans are about quality.”
