This is the prototype of a remote control for the elderly. Simplicity, readability and easy access to popular functions were our main goals in this project. The concept remote will have the ability to store favourite channels, while the numerical keyboard will be eliminated. There will also be affordance of use with one or two hands. We designed our product after a literature review in Gerontechnology and available control technologies. We also conducted interviews and observation sessions with elderly people in order to evaluate our prototype and were happy to receive positive feedback on our final design.
