Discipline: Service Design

Aimed for solving social problems in the aging society through service design methods, Wellfamily Platform provides services for both elderly people and their family members who desire to manage their independent lifestyles. Currently it consists of three main services with the concept of "Relieve Anxiety and Enhance Enjoyment" for their independent living: preventing falls, training cognitive abilities and promoting social relationships. One of the biggest advantages of our services is its instrumental and emotional support based on the elderly’s activity records gathered at the platform through the automatic linkage between applications.
