Personal Health and Wellness projects
During the Spring 2004 semester, students in CMSC 434 : Introduction to Human-Computer Interaction (Prof. Ben Shneiderman) undertook ten team projects (3-5 students) devoted to design of personal health and wellness technologies. These included mobile devices, home appliances, desktop applications, and web-based databases. Background literature in academic journals and product descriptions (often on the web) informed these designs. Additional links related to information on personal medical devices and personal health records are on the class links page. Students went from low-fidelity to high-fidelity prototypes, then conducted a usability study with 4 to 9 participants before making their final improvements. These projects are meant to inspire others to refine and advance these device prototypes.
