People with a chronic illness can do or avoid doing many things to improve their quality of life. Elderly people often revisit their doctor with the same complaints: usually because they didn’t follow the medical prescriptions. Through our in-depth interviews we found out that one of the reasons is that they do not understand their own condition. A doctors explanation is not comprehensible for everyone. This results in insufficient understanding of the (severity of) their condition and the need to follow medical advice. We developed a short animation explaining swollen leg issues to help patients cope better with their condition.
