Many assistive technology devices are allocated to the elderly and the needs will not be smaller with an aging population. For example, in Sweden, around 70% of assistive devices prescribed go to people aged over 65. These demographic shifts are going to be an important driver behind increases in demand, as well as increases, or changes in the types of demands for more accessible products, including some forms of assistive technology.
