MeViTa: Interactive Visualizations to Help Older Adults with Their Medication Intake Using a Camera-Projector System

Abstract : In this paper, we investigate whether augmented reality visualization techniques can empower older adults to explore and understand medication information in an effective and timely manner. Through a user-centered design process involving older adults and health professionals we developed an interactive camera-projector system called MeViTa (Medication Visualization Table) that projects medication information surrounding medication boxes laid on a table. Six designs were iteratively developed. In total 26 older adults, with a mean age of 71 (±7), participated in the user studies. Although no time benefits were observed, participants perceived MeViTa as an effective means to explore and understand medication information, and as more engaging than the traditional patient information leaflet. Furthermore, by visualizing medication information, our approach provides qualitative findings of the relative ease and difficulty for older adults to learn more about medication information.
