TechRepublic: CES 2016 provides Senior-Friendly Technology 


Five years ago at CES, according to Kathy Birkett, there was literally nothing for senior citizens. Birkett is a founder and editor of Senior Care Corner, a website that provides resources for families caring for seniors. Birkett’s seen products, particularly health care products, aimed at seniors start to appear slowly over the past few years. “We’re seeing some of the devices like the new one from Omron (Project Zero blood pressure monitors) that are easier to use, portable, easy to read, so [manufacturers are] kind of getting the idea of seniors being able to actually use them independently.”

Here’s a look at some of the tech at CES 2016 geared towards helping seniors.
