The current connected and digital world, brings many advantages for the global population but also many disadvantages especially for older people, who tend to experience a reduction in physical and cognitive capacity as well as a diminished openness to new experiences. Design Research, in order to face this complex context, is experimenting the involvement of the users in the design process with Human Centered Design and Co-Design. In this paper, the authors analyze the usefulness of the HCD approach and its application on some case studies with different scales, regarding design projects addressed to aging users.
