Brian Jones, director of the Aware Home Research Initiative, is part of the Georgia Tech launch of HomeLab, designed to help companies evaluate in-home use of emerging health technologies. 

Baby boomers have witnessed many technological innovations, and they expect technology to provide them with solutions to help maintain their independence for as long as possible. They are outfitting their homes with products to help them live healthy lifestyles, manage chronic conditions, remember to take medications and remain connected with their caregivers.

To help companies evaluate baby boomers’ perceptions, use and acceptance of home health and wellness technologies, the Georgia Institute of Technology has launched HomeLab. HomeLab is a statewide network of adults 50 years of age and older recruited to evaluate the in-home usability and effectiveness of consumer products designed for the aging adult population.
