About The Aging Innovation Challenge

The Aging Innovation Challenge is seeking a breakthrough in independent living for older adults and their caregivers. Students from New York’s colleges and universities were invited to submit an innovation to help older adults complete activities of daily living (ADLs). ADLs include eating, bathing, dressing/grooming, mobility, toileting, and transferring.
