About this Project:

The challenge we are trying to address is lack of health information within a community. After interviewing both teachers and students, more than half of interviewees did not have knowledge of emergency procedures such as CPR or how to use an epipen. Our goal is to offer guides to users in an efficient and accessible way.
Upon the design process, we had come up with the idea of implementing a simple style in consideration to make it easier to read text for all types of users. We had also included a navigation bar to add convenience through exploring the three main functions of the app: the guides, 911 call button, and the reminder page.
In the case of an emergency, the user would open the app and search the guide section for instructions on what to do during their specific situation. The user can either search for a written guide or a video demonstration of the procedure. In case the emergency escalates, the user can use the 911 call button which directs them to a medical professional.

More About this Project

The links lead to our mockups, wireframes, slides, and finalized prototype. We had first started our project with paper prototypes as brainstorming and then decided to make a digital mockup and prototype using specific colors and fonts, and making sure the app was accessible to every user.

I want to start by saying how much I appreciate your slide deck. You really took time to detail your design journey and all the stops along the way. It is SO important to talk about how our ideas change over time and how feedback informs our design decisions. I love that you included the user personas that you created during the design process. I think your idea for the app is very much needed, however, it can become dangerous if the resources/videos you include on it are not vetted. CPR, while life-saving, can be very dangerous if not demonstrated and performed properly. As long as the videos or resources that would be included in your app are vetted and accurate, there should not be an issue. Amazing job y'all!

What a beautiful design - first and foremost - we need to highlight the work that your team did in putting it together! It is well written with colorful imagery, and clearly outlines what your app is/does. I also like how you also outlined which individual was responsible for which part of the project.

This is an app that is quite productive for Users and they would find it helpful to read the profiles you put together as examples of why/how others use the features. The reminders feature is practical and a key feature, in my opinion.

I love how you put data in the project around CPR. This is a certification course that should be taught in every school district around the country. Your research and advocacy around this could make a huge difference!

The one feature I would perhaps consider removing is the 911 button. I would think about how useful it is in the scheme of what the value-add is for the app.

Overall, absolutely well done in concept, design, storytelling - all of it!

This is really a job well done and well done. The way you explained the steps you followed until you reached the prototype (and which are correct because it meets what should be done in a UX project) reveals all the care and knowledge you had when you carried out this project. The research carried out, the data collection, the creation of personas, the brainstorming that is so important, the mockup... in short, I can only congratulate you for what you managed to convey and for the job well done. At the design level, I would only consider presenting a lower "resolution" of the app's screen in Figma and it would also be an asset to present images of the processes to which the app refers. For the rest, all very well done and I hope for good news from you!

Health help, I am deeply impressed by your slide deck and the ability to effectively communicate what health help is focused on solving. The choice of colours, how they are presented and also the fact that you are making us aware that the little knowledge that is expected of people to know in the area of a health emergency, first aid and CPR application is one that a large chunk of people is unaware of. Thank you for seeing through this and I am rooting that you push and make this a reality.

Thank you for your support! Comments are closed for this year. Join us to look forward to next year's projects!
