This paper reviews technology to support aging in place. Although the populations in many countries are aging and various funding programmes have supported their development, these technologies are not yet widespread. To support people developing these systems in having more success in the future, here types of systems available and a number of systems that have been developed are described. Furthermore, some of the benefits, both potential and realized, are described.
