Class 12 students create dining out app for the elderly and the disabled

Most restaurants present challenges for the elderly and the physically challenged Ė too many stairs to climb, dim lighting, boisterous crowd, etc. What if they could be forewarned about these challenges? Comfort Zone, an app developed by Jayati Sood and Arav Agarwal, Class 12 science students of The Motherís International School, started out as an attempt to answer this question.

During Digital Literacy workshops conducted by Agewell Foundation, the students realised that senior citizens were in fact very receptive to technology, and eager to connect with the world. They observed the common problems they faced with their smart phones. Then they created questionnaire using Google Forms, covering a large number of features that make a restaurant senior friendly. This was sent out as a link to the form via their website www.comfortzone.site, to family and friends, to be filled out while visiting a restaurant. After surveying 138 restaurants, the data was loaded on app.

The result is a technological solution thatís easy to use, and helps senior citizens and the physically challenged dine independently. Currently the students are working on covering more ground. The immediate goal is to cover all restaurants in Delhi-NCR, and future plans include expanding to other States and recreation hubs.
