Abstract: 

This workshop presents guidance for designing for and using motion-based systems with people who have dementia. Based on our own experience running groups with people with dementia using Xbox Kinect, combined with evidence from a review of the  literature, we will share our findings on key issues for designing software to meet the needs of this population. We will illustrate features of the three key domains – cognitive, physical and social - with examples from our studies in day programs.
