In: Rival, I. ) Ordered Sets, pp. 445–470. ca Abstract. Mobile devices can be used to provide assistance to people with cognitive impairments wherever they go and increase their independence. Due to the limited capacities of the target users and the constraints related to mobile devices, special care must be used when developing software.

Those systems can suffer from connection problems if the user is inside a structure or outside the system’s coverage area. When the connection fails, caregivers and patients can only depend on the last data received by the server (usually their last position outside). If MAT designers want their application to reach a maximum of users, they must manage the way it reacts whether it has access to a specific network or not. Patients and their helpers depend on these applications, often to communicate.

The use of mobile devices induces error-prone situations: input buttons are small and hard to interact with, small screens are hard to read or organize information into, etc. A careful design which prevents a problem from occurring in the first place is superior to good error messages. Designers should either eliminate error-prone conditions or check for them and ask users for confirmation. Another drawback comes from the size of the device: it forces the use of deep interfaces instead of broad ones, which forces to retain one’s attention throughout the interaction [6].
