About This Project

​We developed interfaces to flexibly display data gathered from wearable sensors, and help participants to understand their daily physical condition and activities. We also investigated how the interface enhances communication in the context of a meeting between patient and health care professional.

  • Extensive design discussions
  • Piping real-world sensor data to application
  • Creation of data-driven interactive visualizations

Mockups

Developed numerous concept mockups for display activity and location data

  • Learned first hand how discussion about UI is better with visual artifacts to critique and riff on
  • Zoned in on more clearly define requirements
  • Decided maps were too complex for the physician use-case

  • Automatic data syncing to 3 distinct wearable devices
  • Anonymized participant information in database

Prototypes

Used D3.js, Google Maps and Crossfilter to display data over time, with features to zoom and filter on specifics

  • Patient users thought this was really cool
  • Health professionals felt data-overload and wanted a simpler interface
  • These and other insights helped inform future iterations of the project
