Packaging for older people

Pack(ageing) design provides the basic information of the package directly to older people in a simply concise format using NFC technology. The application can be used to figure out nutritional information by tapping the container to the smart phone. This application provides consumers with information in a simpler format following packaging guidelines aimed at the older generation, it also allows them to know whether a food item is suitable for their health and dietary needs by cross-referencing the information they provide with information stored in the packaging’s printed memory.

The second part of Pack(ageing) is a medical packaging which is integrated with printed electronic circuitry and employs NFC and RFID that interacts with smart phone technology to provide visual and oral reminders to take medication. Each pill is connected to the circuit and when the metal film is broken in the administering process, the application is notified and the timer is set for the next reminder..
