Designing Usable and Acceptable Reminders for the Home
Proc. AAATE Workshop AT Technology Transfer, Sheffield, UK
Electronic reminders can play a key role in enabling people to manage their care and remain independent in their own homes for longer. The MultiMemoHome project aims to develop reminder designs that are accessible and usable for users with a range of abilities and preferences. In an initial exploration of key design parameters, we surveyed 378 adults from all age groups online (N=206) and by post (N= 172). The wide spread of preferences that we found illustrates the importance of adapting reminder solutions to individuals. We present two reusable personas that emerged from the research and discuss how questionnaires can be used for technology transfer.
