Imagine you have a pair of shoes that warns you for a shuffle gait, motivates you to lift your feet higher, counts your steps to stimulate you to keep moving and warns you for fall risks in your environment. How can users interact with smart shoes? What kind of feedback do they appreciate? Does this contribute to decrease fall risk or fear of falling? Does it motivate the users to walk more, to improve mobility and stamina?
This project that investigates the value conflics in the smart home, is a collaboration between Nazli Cila, Maria Luce Lupetti, Janna van Grunsven, and Luciano Cavalcante Siebert; and funded by the Delft Design for Values Institute Open Subsidy Program
