MedMaster is an Internet of Things pill dispensing device that helps users store and keep track of their daily medications. In my "Interface Prototyping" course, I designed and prototyped several components of the MedMaster experience, including a smartphone app, a 3D-modeled carabiner, and a touch-based interface for the pill dispensing device.
I designed low-fidelity screens for the MedMaster mobile app using Balsamiq Mockups. The app allows the user to receive alerts about their missed or overdue medication doses, and it provides an "at a glance" look at their daily dose schedule. The app also displays information concerning the supply of each medication in the pill dispenser, and it allows the user to easily order medication refills from their local pharmacy.
In addition to designing the app's screens, I also wrote a scenario involving a young adult who helps her mother use the app to manage her medications.
I designed medium-fidelity screens for the MedMaster mobile app using Sketch and created a clickable page prototype using InVision. For this assignment, I created a more detailed persona of a target user, and I iterated on my design choices in the low-fidelity prototype by conducting usability tests with two people.
Try my interactive prototype below:
I was tasked with designing a small, tangible device for the MedMaster experience that could be worn or attached to clothing in order to provide the user with information about their upcoming or missed doses on the go.
My device, the MedMaster Clip, is a lightweight carabiner-like shackle that clips onto the user's belt loop, backpack, or purse. The MedMaster Clip contains a digital display showing the current time, an LED that flashes alongside an alarm sound when the user's predetermined alert times are reached (e.g. 15 minutes overdue, 30 minutes overdue, etc.), and a button that "snoozes" an alert when tapped. The user can also see their next scheduled time for doses by pressing and holding the button.
I created a 3D model of the MedMaster Clip using Autodesk's Fusion 360, and made a presentation board displaying rendered images of the device. I also made a mood board showcasing items and conventions that help contextualize my design.
The final component of the MedMaster experience is the pill dispensing device, which has an embedded touch-screen interface. I prototyped the UI using Axure, and I fully simulated screens for two tasks: updating the user's schedule and updating their contacts. These screens utilize coding in Axure in order to save information input by the user. I also prototyped "demo" modes to showcase screens for initial onboarding and scheduled alerts. I made a flow chart to illustrate all of the UI screens and tasks, including some that weren't simulated in the prototype.
