Collaboration in the development of new technologies for the elderly
Our main goal is to involve older people in the design and development of Information Technology and Communication (ICT) systems to enable further maintenance of the autonomy of the elderly.
We participate in research projects, conduct interviews, questionnaires and focus groups with end users (the elderly). We also perform pilot tests to find therelevant aspects of the user experience that can help us improve the product's usability and accessibility.
We work closely with all stakeholders in the design of these products (ICT industries, researchers, end users, professionals ...) with the common goal of improving the quality of life of older people.
