The Honourable Michael H. Wilson

cordially invites you to a thought-provoking presentation on 

Disrupting the Aging Landscape, From Smart Homes to Robots

by

Professor Alex Mihailidis 
Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy
Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering 
University of Toronto

Our population is getting older and we need better approaches to providing care. Despite significant advances in technologies for wellness in older adults, most prototypes have not made it to market. Many are simply not user friendly or efficient enough for aging adults to operate. To ensure the usefulness of future technologies, we need new ways of thinking about their design. We need disruptive technologies. Professor Mihailidis will explain the concept and how we can apply it to the next generation of technologies for older adults. 


Professors Mihailidis's presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted in cities around the world. U of T Where You Are brings the University right into your community. Stay informed, inspired and connected, because together we are boundless.
