Abstract

The present article reports a systematic review of reviews and meta-analysis whose main objective was to systematize current evidence of technologies for ageing in place designed to support the daily living of community-dwelling older adults. The broad analysis of the study reported in the present article is useful to inform older adults, practitioners and researchers about the state of the art of technologies for ageing in place. A total of 24 reviews and meta-analysis were retrieved. These studies analyse the impact of different technologies in community-dwelling older adults, considering several outcomes, namely physical activity, nutrition, health education, or loneliness and social isolation.
