Exploring accessible remote design methods has become the need of the hour for supporting participation in research and collaborative design with individuals with dementia. Existing remote design approaches face specific challenges when facilitating best practices for co-design with participants with dementia. These challenges include, enabling sensory engagement with physical design materials and prototypes and observing these interactions in a natural manner. We present a system architecture and use cases for a portable system with a range of connected devices that support real-time, embodied design activities with individuals with dementia.
