The healthcare sector is facing challenges due to the forthcoming demographic shift in the ageing population. Technology is essential to bridge the gap in supply and demand of care, but if firms take a technology-push approach to technology development, solutions risk being unsuitable for the elderly endusers. Responsible research and innovation proposes a solution in which end-user involvement is central. In order to successfully include end-users in innovation, the users' motivation for participating should be accounted for, as motivated users appear to be beneficial for creativity and active engagement in the innovation process. This scoping literature review aims to explore previous work on the role of elderly user motivation in health-related innovation processes.
