Accessibility and usability guidelines for mobile devices in home health monitoring

Accessibility and usability guidelines for mobile devices in home health monitoring The use of tele-medicine, telecommunications, web-based applications and medical monitoring devices can provide a 'medical life-line' for the chronically ill, disabled and elderly home-bound persons. This research develops a guideline of accessibility and usability for the multimodal home-based mobile medical monitoring devices used by older adults. Field studies are used to evaluate the quantitative visualization, errors, input and time factors. Additionally, qualitative studies using surveys and interviews focus on customer satisfaction. The findings of the study will form the accessibility and usability guideline. We anticipate that this usability guideline could be used as the foundation for the design and testing of future mobile medical devices used in the home. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ACM SIGACCESS Accessibility and Computing Association for Computing Machinery

Abstract

The use of tele-medicine, telecommunications, web-based applications and medical monitoring devices can provide a 'medical life-line' for the chronically ill, disabled and elderly home-bound persons. This research develops a guideline of accessibility and usability for the multimodal home-based mobile medical monitoring devices used by older adults. Field studies are used to evaluate the quantitative visualization, errors, input and time factors. Additionally, qualitative studies using surveys and interviews focus on customer satisfaction. The findings of the study will form the accessibility and usability guideline. We anticipate that this usability guideline could be used as the foundation for the design and testing of future mobile medical devices used in the home.
