|Abstract: ||Memory problems are often associated with ageing and are among the most common effects of brain injury. Such problems can severely disrupt daily life and put huge strain on family members and carers. Electronic devices have been used successfully to provide short and timely reminders to memory-impaired individuals. We are currently developing an electronic memory aid that runs on a personal digital assistant. The system has the ability to enter data not only on the device itself, but also from other stations by means of mobile telephony. Users, carers or administrative staff can remotely enter device data, which creates flexibility of data entry and monitoring. This paper describes usability issues identified in the design of the memory aid interface and preliminary findings of the field trial in which the device is currently being tested.|
