The inclusion and autonomy of older people in the society where large parts of the life is organized with computer and Internet use as means is addressed in an ongoing project in the rehabilitation and health domains. Part from investigating the potentials of using ICT for rehabilitation of older people with limited or no computer skills, the aim for the project is to develop methods and tools for the purpose, and also for the interaction design domain where systems are developed for older people. This paper reports results from using activity theory and the notion of ZPD for prototype development and evaluation of decision and activity support systems as a common tool for the patient and professional in the rehabilitation process. The results include a protocol for capturing the users’ development of skills in Internet-mediated activity. The protocol is used for informing the design of the system in an iterative process.
