VTT human-centred design groups use scenarios commonly as a design tool in selected application areas. Our human-centred design process addresses strong Design for All (DfA) approach which means that we usually have also elderly groups as potential users in the product development process. Based on our recent experiences on projects (e.g. Nomadic Media and Mimosa) concerning future applications of technologically enhanced everyday life of elderly people we present a scenario based design model focusing on elderly citizens. Our scenario based design model aims to give a digestible description of and guidelines on how to use scenarios in different phases of the product development process when co-designing with elderly participants.
