David Fairbrother: Digital Design


University of Manchester: Keep On, Keep Up

A tablet prototype designed to tackle the issue of falls by the elderly; the largest cause of accidental death.

30-50% of older people fall at least once per year. This costs the NHS £2.3bn a year.

The app looks to prompt DIY exercises, strengthening limbs and reducing risk of falls. Puzzles also educate on ensuring potential trip hazards are identified and addressed.

An agile approach was used for this project. Involving design and development sprints, user testing and iterative updates.
