Mutual inspiration in the development of new technology for older people.

  There are few guidelines on how to involve older people in the design process of new IT related products. In this paper we describe some of the difficulties encountered when working with older people, and introduce the concept of mutual inspiration, illustrated by our experiences. We argue that mutual inspiration can provide a way to make interactions with older people more effective, leading towards more active involvement in the development process and more innovative results.
