A smartwatch application for older adults to get help in emergency situations.
Ligo helps older adults and, by extension, any person that needs some kind of assistance in their daily lives.
We interviewed different stakeholders: possible users, family members, nurses and other caretakers.
The research lead us to three personas.
Interaction framework for Ligo
Medium-fidelity paper prototype
The high-fidelity in action.
- It is difficult for older adults to differentiate touch and forced touch.
- The participants were not familiarized with the snooze function concept in alarms.
- It is important to consider the amount of time before a product screen goes off, as older people may need longer to interact and plan their next action.
- Inserting assistive technology into devices already adopted by the general population will surely increase its acceptance.
