Designing for Older Adults
Almost 50% of adults aged 65+ owned a smartphone in the US in 2016.
As mobile and household technologies proliferate, designing for the aging population necessitates. But current human-computer interaction research mostly targets children, young adults, or adults when designing new technologies. Older adults are differently abled
; building computing solutions accessible to them requires understanding unique design requirements, such as their physical and cognitive constraints. Our research examines how to design mobile and smart home technologies accessible to older adults.
