Abstract

Malaysia is expected to reach population ageing in year 2021. There are many ways to tackle with the problems of population ageing and technology is one of them in supporting elderly in their daily life. However, elderly have problem when using technology because of their decreasing ability. In this research, we carried out 2 interviews with different groups of elderly to identify their problems of using technology, and their daily activities based on their location in a house. Based on the finding, we listed down all the important requirements in designing a wearable device. They are (a) Replacing Graphical User Interface (GUI) with Tangible User Interface (TUI) (b) Considering mental model of elderly when designing interaction and user interface, and (c) Able to provide implicit interaction to elderly.
