Evaluating mHealth Design for People with Dementia: Preliminary Results

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


The availability of mHealth for people with dementia is increasing. Various mHealth design guidelines for this population have been proposed. In this study, we developed a binary checklist with evaluation statements to assess the implementation of twenty design suggestions in seven currently available mHealth apps for people with dementia. Between 17%-65% of the evaluation statements in the checklist were implemented in these apps. Not all statements were considered applicable for each assessed mHealth app, which resulted in dividing the criteria in two groups as either key evaluation statements or optional evaluation statements. In future work we want to augment this checklist to contribute to the future design of mHealth for people with dementia.
