Abstract

Nowadays, with population aging, shortage of care workers is becoming a serious problem in Japan. Therefore, the introduction of assistive technologies at nursing care sites is a measure expected to reduce the work burden of caregivers. However, there is not much knowledge of assistive technologies required for a smooth introduction yet. Thus, especially regarding monitoring sensors, our study clarified the factors of technology acceptance and their influence on nursing care sites by interview surveys to the caregivers in nursing homes. In addition, based on the findings obtained from the survey, we presented several policies for future surveys about the introduction of assistive technologies in nursing care sites.
