Activating your innovation radar: MOCA
The assignment of this module was initiated by the town Bladel with the goal to get fragile elderly more active in society. By involving elderly in activities in a facility center, the town wants to extend the independent living of the elderly. In this project the town Bladel is working together with Zuidzorg, Vrienden van de Thuiszorg and GOW Welzijnswerk.
The challenge in this project was to motivate the fragile elderly to go to the facility center. By sensing the stakeholders and the user group, the current struggles for these parties were explored. After visualizing and mapping these struggles, design opportunities were created which resulted in ‘MOCA’. MOCA is a tablet application that will motivate fragile elderly to join the activities in the facility center of Bladel.
This project was presented at the ‘Home Automation and Smart Living’ event in 2012.
During this module I worked together with Meerthe Heuvelings, Hanneke Hooft van Huysduynen and Leonie Tenthof van Noorden.
