Research Project

My PhD project concerns the relation between development of technology and organization of work in the innovation field of digital assisting technologies for elderly people.

In this project, I emphasize the mutual constitution of visions of the context of use, practices of development and configuration of interfaces on the one hand and practices of organizing outpatient elderly care on the other hand.

In light of demographic change, numerous projects for the development of technical assistance, which should enable elderly people to lead a longer self-determined life in their everyday environment, are being promoted. This has resulted in numerous demonstrators, prototypes and products, which, however, were usually designed and constructed by technology developers alone. Although these technologies can hardly work without interfaces that must be operated by care services or relatives in order to provide the intended benefit for the elderly person, actors from care do not take a prominent role in their conception so far.

This project therefore asks what significance the organization of outpatient care work has had so far for the conception of this technology and then examines the development of this relationship between technical conception and everyday organizational practice.

To this end, a qualitative approach at the level of the innovation field of digital assistance systems for elderly people will be pursued, based on interviews, document analysis and participatory observation.
