Doremi Focus

The user-centred design activities will be conducted with participants from Italy and the UK with similar characteristics to the DOREMI target users, and a reference group of older adults with normal cognitive function. There will be a group of around 8 people with MCI and normal cognition in both Italy and the UK (approximately 16 people in total). These users will form the DOREMI reference group and will be retained
for all DOREMI user-centred design activities.

 

Usability feedback from the focus groups will be analysed qualitatively. Usability problems will be addressed with further consideration of design issues, which will be incorporated into the prototype and user tested again with the same participants. Data will be analysed and the iterative process will continue until the users and the research team are satisfied with the quality, accessibility and functionality of the game.
