Is a multi-touch gesture interface based on a tablet better than a smart phone for elderly users?
With the increasing growth in the elderly population, the health care and social problems of this demographic have become an ongoing concern. Several studies have shown that touch-screen techniques might assist the elderly in their social, recreational and health related activities. However, little research has been conducted on the most suitable multi-touch screen devices for older users with age-related declines. This study aims to bridge the research gap in the use of touch-screens as a pervasive healthcare aid for the elderly.
