How would you like to make life easier for elders, from folding clothes to taking meds? Just come to the Aging 2.0 30-event, 30-city, 30-day pitch tour, going on now through October 8. Start-ups in cities from Beijing to Boston are pitching tech inventions to panels of senior care providers. Winners will move on to the semi-finals, and finalists will present in San Francisco, November 19-20.
By partnering with one of these start-ups, communities can try out helpful new technology for their residents on a trial basis. A few of the innovations include:
- Reminder Rosie, a robot that helps elders remember medications and appointments
- A living time capsule from The History Project
- Telerehabilitation software from RespondWell
- The arc shelf, an easier way to fold clothes
- Vimty, a video-based advance directive platform
