Summary

Med Alarm is an elderly friendly mobile app that helps record medicine list and doctor appointments. We designed Med Alarm with two interactive interfaces for two types of users:  View Demo to explore the App!
               Primal User: Elderly people
              Second User: Caretaker, which include doctor, families who take care about the primal user.
Caretaker has the access to help primal user login and manage medicines and doctor appointments.

CATEGORY:    UIUX Design

TOOL:    Sketch, AdobeXD, Photoshop, Marvel prototype

ROLE:    I did User Research, Storyborading, Wireframing, Prototyping, User Testing with 5 teammates. I came up with this design idea and decided the color scheme. I'm also in charge of the project management. I organize the develop plan, take meeting notes schedule team meetings and check the progress.

Key Challenges

  • Elderly people are not familiar with mobile apps.

  • Many apps require users to manually input detailed info about medicine

  • Elders tend to have vision problems which lead to difficulty to use apps

Spaces for Improvement

  • Enable medicine translation function

  • Add voice input

  • Add “Notes” feature

  • Further user testing on elderly people

  • User feedback to confirm if elders have taken medicine
