The demographics in Denmark are changing. People’s life expectancy is increasing, which puts a strain on the home care resources. The aim of this article is to get a deeper insight to how a specific medication robot in elders’ homes can be further developed and modified to create more independence. An insight to the end users is created through the use of participatory design methods. The methods illuminate the fact that the medication robots design is gawky, its alarm volume is too low, the robot itself is too big and that it lacks the functionality of being transportable.
