Combatting Loneliness & Isolation In The Elderly Community
Final Year Project
A DEVICE THAT AUTOMATICALLY CONNECTS LONELY AND ISOLATED USERS TOGETHER BASED ON SIMILAR AGE, INTERESTS AND HOBBIES.
This product automatically connects lonely / isolated elderly individuals together based on similar age, interests and hobbies. The device’s intention is to build social confidence whilst allowing the consumer to create long lasting friendships to relieve the sense of being alone.
The product utilises haptic feedback, warmth and light to produce senses of calmness and excitement when conversing with someone new. It provides the opportunity to decide how frequently they want to speak with someone, whenever they choose and from the comfort of their own home, ultimately generating control of their own loneliness and isolation.
