The design and usability testing of ‘NMS Assist’
  • Bircham Suite, ITTC Building, Plymouth Science Park

Save event

There is an urgent need to empower people with Parkinson’s (PwP) to self-manage non-motor symptoms (NMS), and facilitate timely intervention. 

A mobile application (NMS Assist) was developed using a user-centred, iterative design process. The purpose of the app was to enable regular assessment of NMS and provide self-help information for PwP and their care partners in the form of animations.

Thirteen participants (PwP, n=9 and care partners, n=4) were recruited to a usability testing study to evaluate key areas for NMS Assist design improvement. Participants were required to carry out various user tasks representative of the main functions of the app. The study methodology and key areas of amendment identified via the usability testing will be discussed. 

This presentation will be given by Thea Dominey and is open to all. Email laura.gill@plymouth.ac.uk to register a place.
