This paper presents the design process of the NESTORE system: a virtual coach for promoting healthy lifestyles in older age. The NESTORE system aims at putting the user at the core of the design process in order to address one of the biggest challenges of our century: “how to develop technologies that are actually useful and usable for the target users?”. In particular, this paper focuses on the design of the system interfaces and coaching strategies and presents the co-design process used for informing technologists on the user’s needs and desires.
