Abstract

The aim of this paper is to foster interdisciplinary research on technology use in old age by including psychological theories and dimensions such as cognitive, motivational and emotional factors which referring to recent research studies highly influence acceptability and usability of technical devices in old age. Therefore, this paper will focus on psychological theories in the context of ageing with regard to attitudes towards technology use, acceptability and the importance of user involvement at the very beginning of technological product development and design.
