2019-05-22

Exjobbspresentation den 4 juni kl 11.00

Ebba Ahlberg och Paula Carlsson presenterar sitt examensarbete Exploring Needs and Designing an Interactive Service to Empower Home Dialysis Patients in their Everyday Life den 4 juni kl 11.00 i DC:165, VR-labbet på IKDC, Sölvegatan 26 i Lund.

The average life expectancy is higher than ever before. Older people are at higher risk of suffering from chronic kidney disease. These patients need dialysis to clean the blood from waste products. This project aims to investigate if an interactive service or product could empower home dialysis patients and increase their quality of life. To do this, home dialysis patients and healthcare providers were interviewed. Based on the needs identified, concepts were generated. Through an iterative design process using sketches, lo- and hi-fi prototypes, the final concept, a health application called The Dialysis Master, was created. The application aims to help dialysis patients become masters of their own health.
