The Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) describes itself as “leading the charge to expedite the development, evaluation and adoption of emerging technologies that will transform the aging experience.”
CAST has four focus areas:
- driving a global vision of how technologies can improve the quality of life for seniors while reducing health care costs
- accelerating technology research and development through pilot evaluations with seniors
- advocating to remove barriers to the rapid commercialization of proven solutions
- promoting dialogue about standards to ensure interoperability and widespread access to aging-services technologies
You will need to visit the CAST web page to view their videos, but it is worth the time as the main one is very well produced and presented. They also have a discussion document.
