As we age, the thought of losing our physical safety and independence to failing health is something no one wants to consider, but something we should all consider just the same. Some of the most common safety precautions that are often encountered by aging individuals include the following:
1) Managing medications according to prescription;
2) Minimizing the effect of slips and falls; and
3) Monitoring chronic health problems (e.g. diabetes and heart disease).
Although some basic devices were created in the past to address these common problems encountered by aging adults, those devices are not nearly as potent as desired these days. Fortunately, more and more competition is coming to the market with new and improved products, taking advantage of the increase in technical ability to create drastically more effective answers to these “age-old” (pardon the pun) problems.
