Abstract: Assistive technologies are a promising option for enabling older adults to live independently at home and therefore to meet the challenges of demographic change. An advantageous way to ensure acceptance and successful use by end users is a participatory involvement and testing in real-life environment. This position paper argues for the specific approach of Living Lab testings when testing assistive technologies with older adults at home. The procedure described is intended as a guideline to adequately consider the specifics of the test subjects, the older adults, and the special test setting in the real-life environment. Therefore, the guideline contributes to the quality of future testings.
