Abstract [en]

The demographic change in the world’s population raises new problems for healthcare, such as rising costs for caretaking on elderly people. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) aims at assisting elderly people through technical equipment to manage their daily tasks in their own homes. One of the important approaches is to monitoring vital parameters without actually sending nursing staff to the person in need of care. Additionally, by including motivational factors (e.g. sports and fitness programs), the person’s health state can be influenced. In this paper, we present a survey within a group of elderly people aged between 40 and 70 years, which is representative for the end-user group the GewoS Chair is designed for. Furthermore, we will discuss the elderly people’s behavior when dealing with new technologies and systems improving further attempts on this target group.
