Designing interactive public displays for social interaction among nursing home residents

Positive peer relationship in nursing homes is an important component of residents' quality of life. However, social interaction between residents is often limited, and relationships difficult to build. In recent years, we have witnessed the widespread use of interactive public displays (IPDs), which attract people's attention and encourage mutual social engagement. For their Ph.D. research, Kai Kang used IPDs to encourage social interactions between residents in nursing homes.
