Active and assisted living (AAL) makes “use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in a person's daily living and working environment to enable them to stay active longer, remain socially connected and live independently into old age”. Research efforts in AAL have increased rapidly to support independent living, as the social and economic impact of aging population has become a more concrete problem in our European society. The impact of the European demographic change is widely recognised making critical the need to address the problem both from a societal and economic standpoint. In the light of this, research into aging, age-related conditions and into supporting an aging population has become a priority for many governments around the world.
