Tangible interaction for stroke survivors: Design recommendations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

In this paper we outline the initial stages of a human centered design process aimed at the design of novel technology (tangible interactive objects) for stroke survivors. We found it useful to support standard methods, such as interviews and focus groups, with a video prototype in order to make the concept of tangible interaction, which was novel to our users, more clear. In addition we carried out a co-design workshop together with stroke survivors. Based on these activities, we present a set of preliminary design guidelines for tangible interaction for stroke survivors.
