The presentation of my final concepts at AHO for the panel of sensors went simply ok. Main questionmarks were put at the relevancy for elders, a point which I had tried to make clear through underlining the new old`s many subgroups and subculutures, an approach I feel is very important when designing for the next generation of elderly, as opposed to today`s parameters focusing solely on aids and politically as well as ergonomically correct products.

Another key hypothesis of this thesis is the stronger focus on coming trends, cultural and technological, as imperative to include when designing services for the next generation of elderly.

A new presentation in the open forum setting will hopefully make this point clearer.
