Since lack of movement constitutes a risk factor for dementia, increasing mobility of older adults is important. We present three technological prototypes, which gear towards increasing mobility, while considering issues such as privacy, autonomy, daily routines, accessibility and shared responsibility, raised in a series of workshops. An expert review of the prototypes especially highlights the importance of considering privacy and autonomy and the need for a holistic perspective when designing technology for older adults with dementia as well as their relatives and other caregivers.
