Samsung introduced a new member of their tech product line called the ‘S Skin’. This technology scans the user’s skin and measures for hydration, melanin and redness in real-time. It uses a combination of cameras, light sensors and conductivity sensors.
The S Skin is paired with a micro-needle patch that is pressed on the user’s skin and will provide the appropriate nutrients to the skin based on the device’s evaluation. This will be ideal for the elderly who are suffering from various skin problems, but don’t know how to care for them regularly.
The older demographic is often forgotten in terms of technology, but many companies are now trying to release innovations to help the elderly. It was revealed by a research that smartphone usage by seniors continues to rise with 41% of people aged 65-69 now having their own mobile device – a figure that is said to continue to surge in coming years. With the developments in tech assisting the elderly and their increasing interest in tech solutions, it will soon be easier and more efficient to address elderly healthcare issues moving forward.
