Abstract [en]

In today's situation, infants born with Deafblindness do not have access to information about who and where individuals in their surroundings are unless they have physical contact with these individuals. However, it is not always possible to obtain physical contact and it is at times like these the infant can feel alone in the world, as the world ends at the infant's fingertips. Establishing a form of communication can be challenging and therefore caregivers to infants born with Deafblindness can receive informational and emotional support from centers, organizations, and communities. However, there is a lack of support in the form of tangible Internet of Things devices that can support the fluency and social interaction in communication when physical contact is impossible. This paper presents a design project using human-centered design methods, resulting in a final concept that proposes six qualities of communication as design recommendations: Direct, Spatially informative, Fluent, Individual, Turn-taking, Feedback, that could be considered when developing an assistive communication device for infants with Deafblindness in order for the infant to feel connected to the context and for the caregiver to feel connected to the infant, without the need for physical contact.
