Abstract: While applications and user interfaces (UI) for elderly people have been discussed by various authors, the specific requirements of people in the transition age from work life to retirement (55-75 years) have not been analyzed in detail yet. Therefore, in this paper we present results from a qualitative empirical analysis within this age group, evaluate their specific usage behavior and system requirements and derive basic UI design guidelines from it. The results indicate that indeed this age group differs in its requirements from older people (75+) mainly considered in the existing literature.
