When developing products I believe that it shall be worth using. The most important input to this is the user and that is why I find this so interesting!

A short discription of my research area is: Usability for products that interact with the user and that are designed for users who are old, perhaps not used to technology and are weakened from disease or conditions. I will also take the secondary users like relatives and caregivers in consideration.
