With the constant aging of the world population, the need for technological solutions mitigating the consequences of such a phenomenon emerges more and more. Traumatic events resulting from aging include falls, postural instabilities, blindness, and many others. Assistive technologies play a pivotal role in this context!

During the seminar, some solutions developed in the field of assistive technologies and how these "measurement systems" can be useful aids in the health care scenario will be presented.
