Every month or so we hear about a new device for senior citizens, usually a phone, but this time we’ve come across a tablet of this kind. The makers of the device are the company Compaan, who want to enable older persons to communicate with their family, friends and caregivers.


Compaan is a tablet that features a wooden frame and specialized software. The device relies on a rugged case that makes it resilient to rougher contacts and it also comes with larger buttons, that are easier to see and handle. All the functions of the device can be switched in two steps and the Compaan seniors tablet has a specialized app that works on phones, tablets and PCs.


The medication of the elderly can be followed through the tablet and other features include photo sharing, blog tracking, games, email and local weather and news. It also has a Picture frame feature, by the way.
