AssistiveTech in the UK

Ecosystem Overview and ATLAS Advocacy Launched in House of Lords

AssistiveTech poised for rapid growth in the UK, tackling key socio-economic challenges.

The official launch event and key findings of the new ‘AssistiveTech in the UK’ interactive report, developed by ATLAS (Assistive Technology, Longevity and Ageing Society) with the support of Aging Analytics Agency and Deep Knowledge Philanthropy was launched in the House of Lords on Tuesday October 4th, 2022.

The event brought together key industry and ecosystem participants, thought leaders, founders of AssistiveTech and AgeTech organisations across governance, policy, charity, academia and industry in a bid to harness the power of technology for social good.

Co-launched with the report was UK-based advocacy initiative, ATLAS, which seeks to help inform and guide the public and private sectors to embrace the UK’s growing Assistive tech, Longevity and Agetech industries.

TLAS’ analysis depicts five segments of companies within AssistiveTech in the UK: Assistive Care Services, Devices and Apps, Education and Consulting, Tech-Enabled Home Care, and Smart Homes technologies.

The report provides insights on numerous AssistiveTech ecosystem participants and stakeholders, major trends and obstacles, and highlights the government’s developmental role in this emerging ecosystem.
