Technology Initiative for Disabled & Elderly (TIDE)

The growing number of older persons places increasing demands on the public health system and on medical and social services. The needs of the elderly are distinctive and mostly relate to their health, comfortable and dignified living, psychological well being (including recreation and social networking), meaningful occupation (with or without economic gains) and security aspects. Older persons, therefore, need much more than just medical care, which needs an inter-disciplinary approach integrating medicine with the other functions.

Keeping in view the National Policy on Older People (NPOP), DST under its Science and Society Programme has recently launched a new programme on “Technology Initiative for Disabled and Elderly (TIDE)” to create an enabling environment for the elderly. The TIDE programme has evolved through a series of consultations involving various stakeholders (geriatric specialists, designers, architects, social scientists, senior citizens, etc.). Five thematic workshops were also organized to deliberate on specific themes. Under this innovative programme, project proposals are supported on conceptualization, research and development for finding technological solutions to address the problems faced by the elderly population and to improve their quality of life. Prestigious academic and research institutions (AIIMS, IITs, IISc, SPA, AIIPMR, National Institute of Social Defence) and NGOs (HelpAge India) are actively associated with the TIDE programme.

The possible interventions under TIDE include design and development of enabling devices, designs of homes, use of ICT in networking, recreation and entertainment, and health and nutritious food. Academic/R&D institutions in collaboration with NGOs or industry can undertake projects under this programme. The initial focus of the programme will be through projects covering areas such as:

a. S&T interventions on short term and long term needs of elderly population.
b. Development of assistive/enabling devices, good designs and systems for elderly persons.
c. Formulation of bench marks/standards and Package of Practice (POP)/Best Management Practices (BMP) for effective realization of the technology applications for elderly.
