Abstract

Human-computer interaction (HCI) issues for older people are extremely important in the light of the rapidly ageing population in developed countries. In addition, technology offers great potential for this age group, but it will be only useful if it can be used effectively by its target users. We will therefore examine how HCI can address the needs and situations of this increasing older population and how their involvement can be maximized in order to support participation and empowerment. In recent years, HCI technologies have manifested their potential to enhance the autonomy and quality of the life of elderly people, through boosting the elicitation of seniors. This paper is describing a methodology and challenges that will support healthcare professionals’ action in the further effective usage of systems based on HCI.
