TODAY'S TABLET BARRIERS
EVEN SIMPLE TO USE TECHNOLOGY IS NOT DESIGNED FOR NON-TECHNICAL USERS
For some people using technology can be daunting and annoying. The task of eg. managing a tablet or apps updates can be complex. The device has many options and (not all relevant) apps. Often, users do not have internet, and the use of video conferencing continues to present a number of challenges. Last but not least, they find the purchase price too high. As a result, users often fail to really engage.
However, simple mobile technologies would support users to stay mentally active, expand social interaction
and build personal confidence. It would be ideal for people who:
have restricted mobility or disability
are frail and aged
are recovering from an illness or accident

“The Family Hub made managing my mother’s Breezie really easy. I was able to add new apps to her Breezie as she became more confident and she’d receive a notification to let her know that I’d added something.”
