The present demographic development of an increasing aging population in all industrialized countries is resulting in an increasing demand for support and care services. This demand can only be satisfied if technology is used. Developments during the last decade are associated with terms like "intelligent home", "personal health" and "ambient assisted living". Examples of these and a description of their use are given in this paper. Ongoing international development of markets and products that implement these concepts are being performed by the respective industries. For their successful introduction in Germany, the use of the currently developing German health telematics infrastructure for personal health-related applications is a major prerequisite. Further important success factors lie in the political and regulatory domains.
