The Research and Design of Healthcare Products for the Elderly in the Wise Information Technology of Med


The increasing aging of the international community has brought the problem of chronic diseases among the elderly to the forefront. At the same time, the intelligence of medical products, the home-based approach to medical products and the precision of smart medical care are among the social trends that prompt this paper to consider how to integrate smart medical technology into home health care products for the elderly, enhance the user experience and promote the development of a smart elderly care model.
Through systematic research work, this paper seeks to meet the physiological and psychological needs of the elderly, and improve the experience of using elderly home health care products.
In this study, firstly, a theoretical study and problem analysis of home health care products for the elderly is conducted, pointing out the design problems in their development process. Secondly, the characteristics of elderly people in terms of user experience and functional needs are classified. Under the influence of "user-centered" design thinking, the needs and emotional experiences of the elderly in the process of treating and managing illnesses are analyzed, in order to improve the applicability of home healthcare products for the elderly.
This research aims to enrich the theoretical and practical research on the need for experience design in the context of smart healthcare and provide new perspectives and design ideas for improving the experience of elderly home health care products.
