re: Technology Not Widely Used in Health Tracking
We have to be realistic when trying to cater health apps towards people 65 years or older. The fact of the matter is that most of those people are already set in their ways and therefore very unlikely to want to change no matter how convenient the new technology is. The health tracking apps should try to cater to the needs of caretakers, from family members to nurses. I also believe that as our generation gets older and starts feeling the effects of old age, we will see more of an incline in the number of people using health tracking apps on smartphones, tablets, and computers.
