  • Marcus R Wigan, Oxford Systematics
The elderly are often the subject of technology assistance, but rarely are made active and peer parties to such Research and development, and are omitted from the governance structures affecting them when fully capable of peer and leadership technical roles. Partly as the stereotype of the old old is rarely distinguished from the capacities of the young old (<75). Examples are given of mobility, assistive technologies and the cooperative design successes when these dependency stereotypes are overcome.
