The research was carried out to determine the rate of use of gerontechnological products, which factors affect their use, and the attitudes towards using gerontechnological products of individuals aged 60 and over who participated in the third-age university. A quantitative research method and survey technique were used in the study. Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U tests were performed. It was found that there was a statistically significant difference between the sub-dimensions of the use of gerontechnological products and age, education, working status, economic status, and health status. In factor analysis findings, four factors were obtained: perceived usefulness of technology, perception of using technology, access to technology and transportation, and anxiety regarding technology use. It was revealed that the participants’ use of gerontechnological products was high and that as product use increased, the anxiety about using technology also increased.
