About the Hearty Project
The Hearty Project aims to provide means for better control of high bloodpressure.
Hypertension, a too high bloodpressure, is responsible for a high prevalence of numerous lifetreatning conditions. Frequent measurement of the bloodpressure allows effective control of bloodpressure through e.g. change of medication or lifestyle. During this project a system was designed that measures a patients bloodpressure and communicate that to physicians.
In Lagos (Nigeria) User Research was conducted to map the needs and desires amongst patients and physicians.
A user yourney map served as an overview for the desired system.
For concept development a section of the journeymap was selected.
Through a storyboard the interaction flow was described in more detail.
Wireframes and screenflows followed after that to further detail the concept.
Based on User Research and concept evaluation a UI was created that takes into account the physicians and patients needs.
The Google Materials UI-kit was used for graphic styling.
The Hearty system
The system contains a patient-App and a physician-App. Both Apps are connected via the Cloud.
Patients have a bloodpressure (BP) measurement device that connects with their App.
The BP measurements are saved and shared with the physician.
The physician can now track if medication have the desired effect on the patient.
