«The growing population of older citizens will soon have an arsenal of helpful technology.»

«It’s official. We’re getting older and there are increasingly more of us. The World Health Organization predicts the world’s population of 60 and older will double to 22% by 2050 from 12% in 2015, and noted, «The pace of population ageing is much faster than in the past.»

Aging, explained WHO, is what «results from the impact of the accumulation of a wide variety of molecular and cellular damage over time,» and that means the increase of  health conditions and diseases of «geriatric syndromes.»»
