In the course Invention Design we focused on the question how new technologies and interaction models change human-machine interaction in a futuristic way. The task was to deal with a technology from the Gardner hype circle of our choice and to develop an application or future scenario.
Admo stands for Advanced Medical Operator and is a medical assistance system that offers preventive health measures. The aim is to prevent and cure diseases and at the same time improve the general health of a patient. The focus lies on personalization, digitalization and networking.
Inspired by IBM's Watson, this concept aims to digitize the healthcare system for patients and doctors, but from the perspective of the patient living in a smart home environment.
With regard to communication between doctor and patient, the system will also reconcile the balance of power between doctor and patient in diagnostic procedures with personalized data and information, resulting in an emancipated patient.
Here are the most important functions and features of admo in detail.
The idea is to shorten the current course of a disease from the symptom to healing, through continuous tracking of health data. The Permanent tracking of medically relevant data creates a continuous personalized health image of a person. A networked digital persona, so to speak, which is constantly compared and monitored with the system and alerts the doctor.
Especially when it comes to health, there are many hurdles to overcome conceptually. In our case, data protection and the trustworthiness of the system were a major conceptual challenge.
Before we could start with the prototypical implementation of the idea, we had to develop our concept step by step with the help of various design methods.
When designing the system, it was important to us that it can be integrated seamlessly and as unobtrusively as possible into everyday life. Since not everyone wants to be constantly confronted with their state of health.
First we compared current assistance systems and decided on various components that could illustrate our features and functions. We then built the Smart Mirror and the assistance system for drawers, shelves and tables.
For the proof of concept, we have built two variations of the prototypes, both intended for different user groups and usecese but with the same functionality. The mirror is ideal for longer interactions with the system due to the larger display area. The small model is equipped with a projector and can therefore beam notifications and information to the wall.
