Abstract or Table of Contents

The McKIZ Aware Community will enable us to move the paradigm of an aware and assistive home to the development of an aware and assistive community infrastructure by incorporating devices and methods into a small urban community of homes, recreation facilities, retail and service providers, on city streets with vehicular traffic and public transportation. This broadens our research, data collection and evaluation of persons with disabilities and aging residents to include instrumental activities of daily living and quality of life that extend beyond the confines of their home.
