Physical activity interventions can alleviate the course of disease for individuals with dementia (IWD) who have been extraordinarily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provides new opportunities not only to mitigate negative effects of the pandemic but also to sustainably improve everyday life of IWD in nursing homes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the ICT-based InCoPE-App, which was used to assess physical and cognitive performance and deliver individualized exercise for IWD, with regard to 1) user experience of nursing assistants, and 2) trends toward the effectiveness of the intervention on physical and cognitive performance of IWD. An 18-week individualized multidomain intervention (2 × 60 min/session) was delivered to an intervention group (IG; n = 10, mean age 88.4 ± 5.6, 70% female) by nursing assistants (n = 10, mean age 56.1 ± 10.4, 90% female) using the InCoPE-App. A control group (CG; n = 3, mean age 87.3 ± 3.5, 100% female) received conventional treatment. User experience was assessed among nursing assistants by different questionnaires, i.e., PSSUQ and ISONORM 9241/110-S for usability, and AttrakDiff2 for pragmatic (PQ), hedonic quality-identity and stimulation (HQI and HQS), and attractiveness (ATT). ... mehr
