From Senior-Targeted Smartphones to GPS-Equipped Walking Canes

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.
