Telecare design: offputting?

"What is telecare?" I her you ask! Telecare is essentially equipment that can help people live independently in their own home. The most common may be the pendent alarm (wear it around a persons neck, press the button if they need help because they have fallen for example).

There has been an interesting recent publication released in the Journal of Ageing and Society exploring how the design of telecare can put people off.

You can access this publication here.
