Sustaining daily, unsupervised healthcare activities in a
private home setting can challenge, among others, older
adults. In this paper, we discuss experiences from designing
a tablet mobile application, MediFrame, to support older
adults’ medication management at home. In relation to
MediFrame’s touch interface design, we discuss existing
guidelines that can be adopted for touch interfaces and we
use MediFrame to illustrate an implementation of such
guidelines.
