This paper aims to provide some lessons learned during the development of the Wireless Insole for Independent and Safe Elderly Living (WIISEL) system that can be generalized for all connected health devices for older adults. The analysis of the different results confirms that there is a clear challenge for modern technologically driven healthcare systems to meet the complex needs of an ageing society. We observed three major themes which should be taken into considerations when tackling the barriers to the uptake of technology enabled care: 1. Face cultural resistance and concerns toward technology enabled care; 2. Improve engagement of users in design; 3. Built or Increase users trust in connected health by spreading awareness and knowledge among end users about technology's benefit and utility.
