Acknowledgement. We cordially want to thank the participants of the EMPARK (Remote monitoring of Parkinson’s disease - Empowerment of patients and improved treatment using ICT-based tools) project, both patients and care professionals, as well as developers, researchers and students working in the project. Pediatric health care is practiced with the goal of promoting the best interests of the child. Treatment generally is rendered under a presumption in favor of sustaining life. However, in some circumstances, the balance of benefits and burdens to the child leads to an assessment that forgoing life-sustaining medical treatment (LSMT) is ethically supportable or advisable.

1. Introduction. The percentage of older people—those over the age of 65—will rise dramatically to 24% byin comparison to 10% in 2 This increase in ageing population has an influence on health care systems, including the cost of caring and increased use of health care systems (Langa et al.,Lehnert et al., ).Health outcomes of seniors are affected not just by.
Interest in technology for aging is driven by multiple converging trends: the rapid pace of technological development, particularly in consumer electronics and communication; the unprecedented growth of the aging population in the United States and worldwide; the increase in the number and survival of persons with disability; the growing and unsustainable costs of caring for the elderly people.
A cynic would say that technology has done nothing to change education. However, in many ways, technology has profoundly changed education. For one, technology has greatly expanded access to education.

The present paper presents a theoretical perspective on assistive technology for elderly people. In a context characterized by an aging population and an increased life expectancy, it is highly likely that we will become the spectators of a powerful pressure on the medical assistance process.
An increasing life expectancy means an increasing need of assistance for longer periods of time, which. A host of cognitive aids, environmental sensors, video and audio technologies, and advanced integrated sensor systems are under development to monitor the health, safety, and well-being of cognitively and/or functionally impaired persons.
6, 7 Progressive maturation of these innovations has the potential to improve the quality-of-care and. We recognize the importance of strengthening international, regional and national capacities in research and technology assessment, especially in view of the rapid development and possible deployment of new technologies that may also have unintended negative impacts, in particular on biodiversity and health, or other unforeseen consequences.

This report identifies a range of emerging technologies that.The use of technology and its’ providing information allows the elderly to face more easily the difficulties of modern life, trespassing the limits of their social and emotional isolation, thus achieving a more qualitative living.
The purpose of this research was to explore whether the elderly were familiar with modern technology. Needs refers to those in need—the world’s poor. The limitations are those “imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment’s ability to meet present and future needs.” Though many examples of sustainable development exist, the leading models are discussed below.
