We report on findings from two focus groups for designing an application for balance training at home with an augmented reality virtual coach. Following a User-Centered Design approach, we performed two focus groups with older adults at the early stages of development. Focus group participants were shown a prototype using a Meta 2 head mounted display. Their movements were tracked using a Kinect 2. The virtual coach gave balance training instructions and demonstrated their correct performance. Results suggest that, given the trade-offs of traditional health care, older adults are positive towards using an AR coach for their balance training.
