Abstract [en]

Aim: Physical exercise can have a significant beneficial effect on mental health, and elderly fitness programs are a widely accepted approach to preventing frailtyMethods: We present the ELF@Home project, and report design insights and other results from user involvement in the project, as well as inputs from medical experts. ELF@Home is an example of a “Positive Technology’’ approach, exemplifying the application of technology to improve the quality of personal experience through structuring of activity and personal augmentation.Findings and conclusion: The project proposes the adoption of new technology into everyday life from the perspective of positive psychology, approaching this aim by designing devices and systems that are actually usable and desirable in supporting extended healthy living for this target population. In the presentation, we focus on our findings from the project and on possibilities for future work in this area.
