Description:  The focus of this project is the iterative design and testing of a prototype multi-user health kiosk designed to enable community-residing older adults to self-monitor selected physical, physiologic, and psychological parameters, and to engage in evidence-based interventions that promote communication with health care providers and improved sleep, lifestyle, mobility, bladder health, and chronic disease self-management behaviors.
