Mobility and Cognition for Aging Population

Goals

To understand the market size and key players of the mobility and cognition space for the aging population.

Early Findings

Mobility

  • Our initial research indicates that a market size for technology that tracks or measures mobility, specifically gait and balance, for senior citizens is not available. This could be because this is an emerging technology with very few players in the market.

Aging Population Growth

  • In 2030 the United States will reach an important demographic milestone. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2030 there will be approximately 78 million people over the age of 65 compared to 76.7 million under the age of 18.
  • According to United Nations population data, Europe has the oldest population in the world with one and four over the age of 60.
  • The elderly population in Asia is growing at an alarming rate and is expected to reach 1.3 billion over the age of 60 by 2050.
