From Senior-Targeted Smartphones to GPS-Equipped Walking Canes

By: Megan Facciuolo - Published:
This list of elderly innovations will make any senior citizen's daily activities much easier. It can be hard for most senior citizens to live in today's technological world; they just surpassed the opportune time-frame to pick it up quickly. But when you live over 60 years without the use of a computer, GPS or a smartphone, it can be hard to adapt to them as easily as a child.

Companies are now having to find ways to include the senior demographic and come up with senior-friendly technologies. The STYLISTIC S01, for example, is an Android-powered smartphone that engineers designed with more simplistic features for senior usage. Similarly, walking canes are even being infused with technology; 'The Aid' cane includes a GPS screen and is capable of alerting nearby emergency services in case of an accident.
