Abstract

According to the literature, normal ageing is associated with a decline in sensory, perceptual, motor and cognitive abilities. When designing applications for elderly people, it is crucial to take into consideration the decline in functions. For this purpose, gesture-based applications that allow for direct manipulations can be useful, as they provide natural and intuitive interactions. This paper examines gesture-based applications for the elderly and studies that have investigated these applications, and it identifies opportunities and challenges in designing such applications.
