As part of the development of a system to support care-dependent older persons to continue to live in their own homes using ICT for real-time monitoring, we evaluated the user interface of a developed web system, covering the ease of manipulating tablet terminals. We asked 4 older persons living at home to use the web system for 4 weeks, and examined their impressions through a questionnaire survey. We also interviewed 3 facility staff members in charge to collect their opinions regarding the system. The ease of manipulating tablet terminals and contents of data output were generally satisfactory, but the data entry method had yet to be improved. In future studies, we will modify the prototype of this system, mainly improving the data entry method.
