Technology inspired design for pervasive healthcare

van der Linden, Janet; Rogers, Yvonne; Taylor, Crissman and Dalgleish, Mat (2011). Technology inspired design for pervasive healthcare. In: Workshop on User-Centered Design of Pervasive Healthcare Applications, as part of Pervasive Healthcare conference, 23 May 2011, Dublin, Ireland.



Pervasive healthcare technologies are increasingly using novel sensory devices that are able to measure phenomena that could not be measured before. To develop novel healthcare applications that use these largely untested technologies, it is important to have a design process that allows proper exploration of the capabilities of the novel technologies. We focus on the technology-inspired design process that was used in the development of a system to support posture and provide guidance by nudging people, and how this has lead us to explore pervasive healthcare applications.
