Résumé :

Opportunity Knocks: Designing Solutions for an Ageing Society sets out the changes needed in current approaches to ensure we harness the full benefits of design and technology.

We need to design for inclusivity.
We need to better engage with older people to ensure they maximise the benefit of new technology
We must engage industry to better respond to the opportunity of the older consumer.

This report also highlights a range of ideas for new technology which emerged from a workshop organised in May 2015. The ideas, designed not as "solutions to ageing" but to highlight the potential for innovation in focussing on this consumer group, include:

A kettle which monitors blood pressure
TV buddies to allow people to remotely share the experience of watching a programme.
A 'cuddle cushion' which would allow relatives being able to send each other cuddles
A smart water bottle which would prompt people to drink more to prevent dehydration
Accessible and modern "Boris Scooters" (or Segway's) in towns and cities to help people with mild mobility impairments get around
