Abstract
El Aislamiento Social es un problema que se acentúa en la etapa de la vejez, poniendo en riesgo la integridad física y mental de los adultos mayores. Para mitigar este problema, se han desarrollado trabajos computacionales que fomentan la socialización a través de actividades de interacción social basadas en la comunicación y movilidad del adulto mayor. Sin embargo, son escasos los trabajos que proveen evidencia estadística acerca del impacto de las actividades de interacción social con el grado de aislamiento social. Por lo tanto, el objetivo de este trabajo de investigación consiste en identificar actividades de interacción social que tienen relación estadísti...
