Abstract

The global trend of increasing longevity of modern societies is causing a growing attention to the elderly citizens. The world elderly population's needs create the conditions for deploying new types of services to sustain independence and preserve quality of life. The main effort is to achieve e-tools capable of supplying different levels of disability and of satisfying the needs of each user. We focused on one of the most common problems: mobility limitations and their correlates, with particular attention to cognition. This paper presents a real case study on the impact of mobility assistance technology in patients presenting physical and/or cognitive disabilities.
