Approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population qualifies as disabled in one way or another. In fact, nearly everyone -- including all of your current and future customers -- will become disabled in some way, even if only temporarily, over the course of their lives. The Internet of Things holds remarkable promise for underserved communities and populations. This session will explore several inspiring case studies -- from “smart” prosthetics and exoskeletons, to life-saving wrist-watch health monitoring and an "Internet of Grandmas" that fosters independent living for older adults. Each example highlights innovative development and IT support initiatives designed to make a difference in people's lives, simply by adding intelligence and connectivity to ordinary objects.
