Tactile interfaces for older people

Tactile interfaces for older people brings together a computer scientist (Kirsten Cater) and a social scientist (Helen Manchester) with creative technologists (Annie Lywood and Pete Bennett) to explore the potential for soft, interactive textiles and art to enable older people to access and manage their immediate environment and memories. Our work aims to improve the quality of life for care home residents enabling independence, communication and social interaction to mitigate the early-stages of dementia.
