Diyhealth intro

  1. 1. Designing and Buildinga System for Self-CareDIY HealthSteven Deansteven.dean@nyu.edu917 538-5194
  2. 2. World Health Organization defines health as“a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”
  3. 3. Health is mostly driven by behavior. Not genetics.Your DIY health solutions will focus on behavior.
  4. 4. course description
  5. 5. Traditional medical care focuses on fixing sickness butdoesnt do a very good job of helping prevent it.Who does a good job of preventing sickness?
  6. 6. Self-care solutions that help us take better care ofourselves have the potential to improve our health andwell-being, and may keep us from experiencing theconsequences of chronic disease, or even reversing it.What does self-care mean to you?
  7. 7. The sensor and self-tracking revolution is changing ourunderstanding of data and ourselves. We need newsystems that collect, understand and interpret this data tohelp us know ourselves better and make better choices inlight of that knowledge.How do you currently learn about yourself?
  8. 8. How might we design a self-care system that engages usin our own monitoring, goal setting, experimenting,reflecting and understanding as it relates to our bodies,minds, emotions, relationships and environment?What system, if any, do you use now?
  9. 9. Since self-care applies to all of us, you will focus inwardlyon your own needs and situations.
  10. 10. The goal of the course is to design a self-care system thathelps you take stock of yourself by exploring ways tomeasure, reflect and act upon your health and lifestyle.
  11. 11. You will be making interactive interfaces, visualizationsand feedback systems that use existing technologies andmethods to support your health and well-being.
  12. 12. You will employ design techniques to develop problemstatements, generate concepts, prototype, and then testand refine your solutions to evolve them into high-fidelityprototypes that use sketches, scenarios, videos and userjourneys to convey the complete user experience.
  13. 13. The emphasis is on the lightest weight prototype, whichworks through the solution over actual implementations insoftware and hardware. Significant portions of class timewill be set aside for teamwork, designing and critique.
  14. 14. goals of the course
  15. 15. Learn how actions lead to achieving goals.
  16. 16. Learn how behavior change works.
  17. 17. Learn how to design for behavior change.
  18. 18. Learn how to model systems.
  19. 19. Design a self-care system that works for you.
  20. 20. Collaborate with others to test and improve your designs.
  21. 21. requirements
  22. 22. Come to class.
  23. 23. Arrive on time.
