In young adults, intentions have been shown to be more accessible (e.g. faster reaction times and higher accuracy) compared to other sorts of to-be-remembered information, a result termed an ‘intention superiority effect’ (Goschke & Kuhl, 1993). In the current study, we assessed whether older adults also demonstrate this superiority of intention-related(More)
BACKGROUND The role of technology to facilitate independent living for people with dementia is not fully realized, with initial attempts (e.g. tracking devices) being considered unacceptable from a practical and ethical perspective. The aim of this study is to create acceptable and effective prototype technologies to facilitate independence for people with(More)
The use of digital technologies is increasingly proposed in health and social care to address the aging population phenomenon but, in practice, the designers of these technologies are ill equipped to design for older people. We suggest participatory design as an approach to improving the quality of design for older people but, based on previous work and our(More)
We describe the development, application and evaluation of a design method tailored for working with people with mild to moderate dementia. Our experiences with the approach highlighted areas where designers and participants held radically different views. The tenet of our approach was that to overcome these differences we needed to create an empathic(More)
BACKGROUND Improvements in the surgical technique of radical prostatectomy have allowed the length of postoperative catheterization to be reduced dramatically over the past 20 years. Today, many surgeons perform a cystogram to ensure the anastomosis is watertight before an 'early' (day 7 or less) trial of void (TOV). We aim to show that achieving an(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to explore the value of noninvasive predictors of death/mode of death in ambulant outpatients with chronic heart failure (HF). BACKGROUND Mortality in chronic HF remains high, with a significant number of patients dying of progressive disease. Identification of these patients is important. METHODS We recruited 553(More)
This paper reports findings from a series of participatory design workshops with ten people over eighty years old. The focus of the workshops was new banking technologies for the older old. Participants were asked to discuss their current experiences of banking and given packs of <i>concept cards</i> which contained design sketches and brief outlines of(More)
Supporting independent living for the ageing population in later life is an often-cited application area for ubiquitous computing. Telecare services such as remote monitoring systems are now coming onto the consumer market but there is little knowledge of the impact these technologies may have on relationships between family members and older relatives. We(More)
A cheque is a paper document that orders the transfer of money between bank accounts. Whilst an eighty-year-old in the UK is predicted on average to live at least another ten years, cheques may not. Despite many older peoples extensive use of cheques, UK banks are eager to abolish them and design electronic alternatives that are less costly to process and(More)
Ubiquitous technology, coupled with a surge in empirical research on people that engages people with multiple challenges in their lives, is increasingly revealing the potential for HCI to enrich the lives of vulnerable people. Designing for people with vulnerabilities requires an approach to participation that is sensitive to the risks of possible(More)
