Challenges in integrating assistive technologies into elderly care services

Comparative study between Japan and Finland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Aging causes a global challenge in our society. While ICT and robotics are expected as potential solutions toward sustainable care, the technology integration process in elderly-care service systems is cumbersome, especially in the international context. This study focuses on facility care services in Japan and Finland. Through the interview with managers of facility care services in both countries, this work clarified their expectation toward technologies and the barriers for technology integration.
