Twente University / Master Thesis

Improve social connectedness of elderly people with their (grand)children

Master assignment executed at the User Experience department of Philips Research. The product prolonged the independency of elderly by increasing the social connectedness with their family.

By providing easier ways to share media with their family and by simplifying the digitalization of items, the threshold for elderly to participate in a technological sharing system was lowered.

I adjusted the fully functional interface for elderly and tested the during a field trial with multiple participants.
