Over het initiatief / About the initiative
In welke fase zit jouw initiatief? / In what stage is your initiative?
Heb je jouw initiatief al gevalideerd? / Did you validate your initiative?
Currently I am investigating how can behavioral intent to use, affect acceptance of wearable health technology by elderly patients as my thesis topic. To further understand their attitudes towards technology as to be able to provide a service that is designed to meet their intentions and demands of telehealth from a cognitive, mobility and psychosocial view. It was discovered that the elderly do perceive the technology to be very useful but not easy to use , with other factors influencing their attitude towards use, such as technological anxiety.

Elderly / Senior adults have the inconvenience of needing more occasional check ups/ hospital visits due to aging which is characterized by bio-physical changes that result in progressive loss of motor and sensory nerve systems functions. I intend to introduce a VR telehealth approach with a monthly and yearly subscription to facilitate the needs of the elderly. Different services such as consultations, rehabilitation and social interactions/activities will be implemented.
