Design around seniors: Concept generation following contextual research in the home
2008 (English)Report (Refereed)
The creative sessions were based on people-centred video data generated from context studies carried out in the Netherlands and the USA. The study conducted in the Netherlands focused on the social lives of seniors, in which participants and one of their close friends or family members were asked to visualize their social network, describe and visualize a social activity and to assign feelings / associations to the various stages in this process. The study conducted in the USA focused on the informal care practices oriented around seniors living at home, including their friends and family. The seniors in the USA study were subscribers of Philips Lifeline. These studies were analysed by the authors and video fragments were selected for the workshop. Prior to the workshop, a 5- day sensitizing package was given to the participants with the purpsose of immersing the Design Around Seniors team members with the people-centred data. The workshop ran for four days. The first day focused on defining, selecting, and clustering observations and findings, based on the video footage of the context studies, the remaining three days focused on ideation and working out the best ideas by means of photoboarding. This report describes the workshop in greater detail and the resulting product concepts.
