This is KOMP.

Easy communication technology for elderly relatives.

Smartphones and tablets aren’t suitable for everyone

Societies’ most vulnerable groups are often hardest hit by feelings of loneliness and social isolation. That’s why we made KOMP, a one-button computer for seniors who didn’t grow up with technology. KOMP is simple to use, giving its user confidence and a sense of mastery when accessing the most important communication features of a modern device, without the need to remember passwords, use touch screens, or navigate complicated user interfaces. With KOMP, family members can make video calls, share photos and send messages to their relatives in a safe, secure and truly inclusive social network.

KOMP vs Tablets

What makes KOMP different?

For those of us accustomed to technology, it’s easy to assume that using smartphones, tablets and computers comes naturally. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Technology is usually developed for the masses, not for people with cognitive or physical limitations. We designed KOMP specifically for seniors, and involved them in the process throughout development. Each feature has been included or excluded specifically with this group in mind, rather than adapting an existing product. For more information on each feature, press the “i”.
