Our cross-faculty research is transforming both the science and the experience of aging. Learn how our leading-edge research is helping seniors achieve greater mobility, better health and increased social connection.
The research team wanted to examine pandemic-related impacts with a frailty lens because many of the public health measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 were based on age.
At the McMaster Digital Transformation Research Centre, professor Milena Head and others are exploring ways to close the digital gap and make technology more accessible for older adults.
Technologies are now ubiquitous in everyday modern life, but ageism means that older adults are excluded from the design of the technologies that they use.
