The Kannon project at the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Taiwan has designed a smart PDA phone, christened Health Pal, to help elders to manage their healthcare needs such as planning their own physician visits, medication schedules, exercise routines as well as monitoring their blood pressures, pulse rates and oxygen levels. The paper reports the design concepts of the device as well as the activity oriented approach the team undertook during the design process. A comparison of this device against several similar prototypes was also included to highlight its unique features.
