This project is about assisting seniors in their daily life. More and more senior citizens in the world are facing the problem of living alone. After research, I find that medication is a very important part of seniors’ life. My design is about medication reminder that can also connect the seniors with their family members. At first, I focused on the social relationship of senior citizens and started to research medication reminders in the market. I also read many books and magazines about the medication of senior citizens and try to figure out the size and volume of my design. Then I made mockups to try to test the best way for seniors to control a reminder such as the behavior of remembering medications to take. After that, I made my prototypes and brought them to the nursing home. More refinements were made after these discussion in the nursing home. The final version of my design uses an interesting and noticeable way to remind senior citizens to take their medicine. Besides that, my product can connect to phone or a device of seniors’ family members, which gives seniors better connection with their family members.
