The health care system is facing various new challenges, such as the increasing ageing of the population or the challenges of digitalisation. New ways are needed to keep our older generation in touch with innovative technologies in order to offer them the best possible quality of life and care.
Interacting with a voice interface should feel like a normal conversation. This is especially crucial for a generation that has not grown up with digital devices. Voice interfaces can, for instance, be programmed to make emergency calls by simply raising one’s voice. Besides, access to state-of-the-art devices can be designed barrier-free with an intuitive voice control system, thus helping older people overcome their fear of not being able to use them.
In addition, voice control interfaces can become a partner in stress management by using special skills to support meditation or other relaxation strategies. This offers hospitals and care facilities new opportunities to expand their services and at the same time relieve the burden on their own staff.
