Our first step was to look into the needs and wants of our potential users by means of literature studies, interviews and try-outs. This information enriched our initial concept.
As YoooM was taking shape, we continued to involve elderly very closely. Toward the end of the project we conducted research into user satisfaction to make sure, our solution WORKS.
The Connected Vitality Project gave birth to YoooM senior, an over distance connector especially fitted for elderly. We also took the first steps towards the developement of a budget version. YoooM Light will be a small lightweight holder that can transform your own Ipad into a little YoooM.
Concept development in close cooperation with elderly test persons.
User-centered design approach
• Prototype development
• Optimization of camera’s and lenses, interface & controls,
• Community software development
mage and sound tuned for elderly
• Labtests with elderly and software optimization
• Completion of YoooM
• Field studies with elderly in Sweden, Netherlands and Spain
• development of ‘YoooM light’ Ipad Connector
• business development
The project was done within budget. Requirements were met. The collaboration was very inspiring and led to new products that can help solve the problems of today and tomorrow.
The YoooM principle can be applied in many forms and for many different markets in and out of Europe. If you are interested in taking this development further, please contact
