In this paper we present an evaluation study on project "Vir-tuous Cycles of Well-Being", aimed at exploring technology-based wound-care services, solutions and products to sup-port older adults in managing wounds more independently. The aim was to evaluate opinion and use of the app by wound care service users. Nine participants were recruited with an average age of 65. A semi-structured interview methodology was employed following researcher demonstra-tion and participant interaction with the app.
