Israeli robots and apps aim to make aging easier

Israel is poised to lead the global boom in the digital health sector for the elderly, experts say.

Now, however, digital and robotic technologies being developed around the world bring the hope of making aging if not actually fun, then at least a lot easier, allowing elderly citizens to stay at home longer instead of being moved into an old age home and enabling families and caregivers track the health and whereabouts of their loved ones even from a distance.

In this sector, which is seeing a global boost, Israel is in a good place to take the lead, according to Benny Zeevi, managing general partner of Tel Aviv Venture Partners. Zeevi will be co-chairing Israel’s international life science conference and exhibition MIXiii BIOMED that will run Tuesday through Thursday in Tel Aviv.
