I am pleased to announce the latest title in Morgan & Claypool's series on
Assistive, Rehabilitative, and Health-Preserving Technologies:


Designed Technologies for Healthy Aging
Claudia B. Rebola, Rhode Island School of Design
Paperback ISBN: 9781627053174, $55.00
eBook ISBN: 9781627053181
January 2015, 186 pages 



Designed Technologies for Healthy Aging identifies and presents a variety of
contemporary technologies to support older adults' abilities to perform
everyday activities. Efforts of industry, laboratories, and learning
institutions are documented under four major categories: social connections,
independent self care, healthy home and active lifestyle.

The book contains well-documented and illustrative recent examples of
designed technologies-ranging from wearable devices, to mobile applications,
to assistive robots- on the broad areas of design and computation, including
industrial design, interaction design, graphic design, human-computer
interaction, software engineering, and artificial intelligence.
