@Brian Harris I love this! The result from the Youtube video just seemed too unreal for me - if it were true then there is so much potential.
"How do you build engaging rewards into a product like ours?" - If you can demonstrate just like in the video then I think we will be convinced.
"How do you establish accountability through the service?" Could you elaborate more on what you meant by accountability?
"What is the best way to integrate the product/service we are designing into someone's life? Any tips?" => I've been thinking more about toothbrush and shoes more recently since they are both something the elderly regularly uses and doesn't have as much of a resistance as a new device. Food for thought.

Hi Brian Bacin , I really like the thoughtful design (and very nice drawing too!) The device seems to me like a watch right now - what has been challenging for the seniors to use it?

My guess is that in order for the device to not feel obstrusive you may one to implement only one feature first (either environmental sensing or giving daily routine) and see their responses. Please keep us updated - very promising idea!


Khuyen commented on Fall Prevention Suspenders

Hey Lucas Spreiter , I really like this technological wizardry! Have you thought of sandwiching these suspension components between two shirts (so that you can hide the details)? I thought that might be an easy way to improve the look.
