Autonomy, a state of being independent or self-governing, is critical to harness patient empowerment to in-home therapy program, after being discharged from the hospital. How we support patient autonomy in an unsupervised home-based rehabilitation program is arguably present in every healthcare system design decision and yet many questions surrounding autonomy-based design in healthcare systems and devices remain unanswered. In this context, the aim of this project is to design the home-based rehabilitation platform for post-stroke patients, RehabMaster™, in particular for what kinds of autonomy supports should be of value for the in-home rehabilitation.
- Applied user research methods to understand how the rehabilitation process works out
- Proposed interaction design factors for supporting patient autonomy
- Conducted case studies on post-stroke patients to verify the effect of a new system
- Tools: Focus group interview, on-site observations, contextual-inquiry, design of experiments
