Abstract

Growing ageing phenomena and prevalence of mobile technology give rise to the unexplored ‘silver surfer’ group in the local market. Due to ageing, many older adults suffer declination of cognitive, motor and physical abilities. Many of them experience difficulties using certain features when interacting with their mobile phones, especially technology shift from keypad-enabled to touch-screen mobile user interfaces. However, there is still no profound knowledge about how to design for local older adults, and which particular role of affordance might play to ensure usability of mobile user interface for older adults. The role of affordance is very much related to how an older adult perceives a new mobile user interface when they first expose to it that s/he has never seen it before, and have no clues what to do with it. This paper formulates a conceptual research framework for affordance and usability of mobile user interface for older adults.
