Abstract [en]

The aim of the interdisciplinary HealthCloud pre-study project was twofold: to further

knowledge of user experiences of inclusive interface design specifically for an ageing

population, and to develop a digital service for senior persons with sensory decline to promote

healthy living and active ageing. A co-design approach was chosen to investigate the project

aim and knowledge and user experiences was jointly developed and evaluated in three

sequential steps in a participant-group of senior persons. In the design of the conceptual user

interface, the identified core aspect involved a strive for utility: quality of appropriateness in

use, and significance: how designs assume meaning in the ways they are used, as well as

simplicity: to reduce, organize, and making it enjoyable to use. The digital service outcome

consists of validation of previous research themes: keeping the family together; enjoying life

at home; being close to nature; self-development; and promoting conditions for healthy

ageing. The pre-study project outcomes are prototypes of digital health service content and

interfaces, aimed for a future digital HealthCloud service. Participants in the reference-group

found the developed interface easy to use regardless of previous computer skills and they

were also motivated and stimulated by the developed prototypes for promoting active ageing

on a daily basis. Participants also expressed a desire to display and recommend such digital
