Vital is a project about quality of life in old age with focus on elderly and their perception of technology. The goal with this project was to include elderly in the technical revolution, with internet and personal computers, and to design a technical aid for people with little or no previous knowledge in the IT area. The final result is Vital; a laptop that helps to overcome reluctance to adapt to technology. Five quality-of-life-products are included in the product range: a laptop, a telephone, a scale, a blood pressure meter and a pedometer. All products are created to support the feeling of wellbeing, social belonging and activation.
