Abstract [en]

Context: Technology in the field of health care has taken a step forward for making easy health maintenance on a daily basis. With gradual increase in the elderly population, it is important to provide this them, the facilities gained with the use of technology. But it is observed that the elderly show reluctance to the use of new technology like the mobile applications. In the thesis, an effort is made to overcome this barrier with the study of both user experience of elderly and user interface design of a m-health application and analyzing a relation among them.Objectives. In this thesis, user interface design responsible for an increase in the user experience of elderly is focused, to create a base for mobile application developers to design m-health applications that improve the usability of the application.Methods. Quasi-Experiment is conducted to measure user experience with the selected sample from the elderly population. By conducting interviews with the selected sample, data is collected for the experiment./Results. The user experience of the elderly people is analyzed with the original glucosio application and with the prototype of glucosio application. Comparison is made between the user experience in both the cases and conclusion about the relation between the user experience and user interface design of

Objectives: In this thesis, user interface design responsible for an increase in the user experience of elderly is focused, to create a base for mobile application developers to design m-health applications that improve the usability of the application.Methods.

Methods: Quasi-Experiment is conducted to measure user experience with the selected sample from the elderly population. By conducting interviews with the selected sample, data is collected for the experiment.Results. The user experience of the elderly people is analyzed with the original glucosio application and with the prototype of glucosio application. 

Results: The user experience of the elderly people is analyzed with the original glucosio application and with the prototype of glucosio application. Comparison is made between the user experience in both the cases and conclusion about the relation between the user experience and user interface design of the m-health application is made.Conclusions. With the analysis, we can conclude that the combined user interface design of

Conclusions: With the analysis, we can conclude that the combined user interface design of m-health application, when designed as per the interest of elderly people can increase the user experience of the elderly while using the application. Besides, it increases the usability of the application resulting in the elderly population gets benefited with the advanced mobile technologies for their health promotion.
