dc.description.abstractTechnologies can support people with early onset dementia (PwD) to aid them in Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL). The integration of physical and virtual realities in Mixed reality technologies (MRTs) could provide scalable and deployable options in developing prompting systems for PwD. However, these emerging technologies should be evaluated and investigated for feasibility with PwD. Survey instruments such as SUS, SUPR-Q and ethnographic methods that are used for usability evaluation of websites and apps are used to evaluate and study MRTs. However, PwD who cannot provide written and verbal feedback are unable to participate in these studies. MRTs also present challenges due to different ways in which physical and virtual realities could be coupled. Experiences with physical, virtual and the couplings between the two are to be considered in evaluating MRTs. This paper presents methods that we have used in our labs – DATE and SaTS, to study the use of MRTs with PwD. These methods are used to understand the needs of PwD and other stake holders as well as to investigate experiences and interactions of PwD with these emerging technologies.
