Demographic ageing in the Western world means that the average age of the working population is increasing. This has major consequences for the labour process. Growing older is linked to physical and cognitive changes which can influence the performance of tasks. It’s no coincidence that the European Union has designated demographic change as one of its central themes, and European policy until 2020 will focus on this theme. We are faced with an important challenge: to keep an ageing population healthy and deployable in the long term.
Developing monitoring and intervention products in the fields of sensor technology to objectively monitor the physical workload, contribute to the employee’s awareness of its own behaviour and employability, and prevent imbalance between workload and work capactity due to ageing.
