Brief Summary:

In the last ten years, gerontechnology is becoming an increasing topic in geriatric medicine. Nevertheless, there are still few studies assessing the usability of technologies in old patients, especially when they are hospitalized. Moreover, it has been shown that new technologies could be a source of ageism, thence the importance of involving the old people in the development of these technologies.

Tik easy is a subsidiary of La Poste Company. Tik easy as designed a new tablet PC for old people. Research tends to show that the use of tablet PC can promote health and well-aging, and delay cognitive decline. In this study, we want to give a free access to "Ardoiz", the tablet PC designed by Tik easy, for old patients hospitalized in a geriatric acute care unit. The "Ardoiz" tablet PC allows to:

  • Maintain the family and social bond (send and receive messages, share photos and videos, call remotely between the patient and his family)
  • Discovering the Internet at his own pace (browse the Internet with daily updated contents such as news, content on cooking, music, etc.).
  • Prevent cognitive aging (stimulate cognitive abilities with the DYNSEO games).
  • Facilitate online administrative procedures.

Detailed Description:
The "Ardoiz" tablet PC will be given to old patients hospitalized in the acute care geriatric unit of the university hospital of Angers. Patients and their relatives will have a free access to "Ardoiz" during their hospitalisation. The maximum duration of use will be 9 days. After the using period, a survey will be proposed to the patients and their relatives. This survey include questions concerning usability (using the validated SUS questionnaire), ergonomics (using non validated specific questionnaire with closed questions oriented on "Ardoiz" device), satisfaction (general and specific questions using non validated questionnaire with forced choice Likert scale in 4 points and closed questions). After recruiting all expected patients and relatives; the survey will also be submitted to the professional caregivers of the unit.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
old patients

Patient will freely use "Ardoiz" during their hospitalisation for a maximum of 9 days.

After this use, a survey concerning the usability of "Ardoiz" will be administered to the patient, before their discharge from hospital.

Other: usability assessment
Usability of "ardoiz" will be assesse using a validated usability questionnary

relatives / unformal caregivers

Unformal caregivers will freely use "Ardoiz" during the hospitalization of their relatives and a maximum of 9 days.

After this use, a survey concerning the usability of "Ardoiz" will be administered to the unformal caregivers, before the discharge of their hospitalized relatives from hospital.

Other: usability assessment
Usability of "ardoiz" will be assesse using a validated usability questionnary

profesionnal caregivers
After the inclusion of all expected patients and relatives, a survey concerning the usability of "Ardoiz" will be administered to professional caregivers.
Other: usability assessment
Usability of "ardoiz" will be assesse using a validated usability questionnary




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Usability of the Ardoiz® tablet PC [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The usability will be assessed using the validated System Usability Scale (SUS). The mean score obtained by users will be calculated. "Ardoiz" will be considered as usable if the mean score on the SUS is equal or over 70 on 100.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Satisfaction of the users following the use of the Ardoiz® tablet PC. [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The satisfaction will be assessed using a non-validated satisfaction questionnaire based on a forced choice Likert scale in 4 points from 1 to 4. The mean score obtained by users will be used. Users will be considered as satisfied if the mean score is over 2 on 4.

  2. Frequency of use of the Ardoiz® tablet PC by elderly hospitalized patients. [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The frequency of use will be described using a non-validated questionnary based on 4 closed questions.

  3. Most appreciated ergonomic elements for the users [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The ergonomic elements will be assessed using a single choice closed liste of ergonomic elements. The most ergonomic elements will be ranked in descending order of citation by users.

  4. Improvement areas regarding the ergonomics of the Ardoiz® tablet PC. [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The ergonomic elements will be assessed using a single choice closed liste of ergonomic elements. The less ergonomic elements will be ranked in descending order of citation by users.

  5. Improvement areas regarding the functions of the Ardoiz® tablet PC. [ Time Frame: During the 48 hours before the discharge of the hospital ]
    The satisfaction concerning functions of "Ardoiz" will be assessed using a single choice closed liste of functions. The less appreciated functions will be ranked in descending order of citation by users.
