One in six people globally will be aged 60 years or older by 2030. Tech giants and Agetech start-ups are starting to focus more on this growing demographic.  But design for older adults requires an understanding of the complex intersections of age & ability. Age-Inclusive Design employs human entered design methodology, accessible design standards, plain language and positive imagery to create a framework to understand the intersection of age + ability, in order to create better technology products/services. AARP is supporting innovators in understanding opportunities, illuminating trends, creating global networks and co-creating best practices with industry leaders in order to ensure that the growing marketplace of digital products effectively meets the needs of older adults into the future.
