As the researchers, we believe that the relationship between technology interest, experience, and usability is complex. Older adults who are interested in a particular aspect of technology are likely to put in the effort to learn it. A country and a world that has immerse it's capability to develop large amount of technology for people especially for the elders thru technology to improved health care delivery system in many ways.
