Gerontechnology: Origin, definition, and scope
 Geron: from Greek, γέρων, “old man”
 Gerontechnology: 老人「福祉」科技
 August 1991, First International Congress on Gerontechnology in Eindhoven
Netherlands, established the research structure of Gerontechnology.
 International Society of Gerontechnology (ISG):
“Designing technology and environment for independent living and social
participation of older persons in good health, comfort and safety.”
 Scope of gerontechnology (by ISG): health, housing, mobility,
communication, leisure, and work.

Gerontechnology Research Center (GRC)
 Organized from 2001, GRC was officially established in January 2003, the first
research institute focus in the field of gerontechnology in Taiwan.
GRC designs technologies and products to provide practical solutions to
the various problems of the aging society.
 The Chinese value of gerontechnology
曾子曰:孝子之養老也,
【禮記,內則】
“To take care of the elderly parents, you should make them happy, let them do
what they want, help them see well, hear well, and provide them a safe and
comfortable living environment.”
(Zeng, a disciple of Confucius, about 2,500 years ago)
