Blink is a smart device used at home to measure vital signs and perform basic medical tests. It guides the user, collects the data, reports it to a physician and enables feedback from the physician.
During my research, I tried to the create an accurate scenario for my target group which includes elders, large families, babies and people with chronic diseases. My original impetus for the idea was to empower the user to be more proactive about his health rather than being reactive. In order to increase the quality of healthcare, I tried to find alternative solutions for better and healthier communication between the patient and the physician. I visited biochemical labs of hospitals to decide the best vitals for home tests. I had a chance to speak with physicians and biochemists and discuss my project aim. My product had to be based on before and after comparisons and time-based tests that can be easily analyzed by visual data. Within this deep health tracker, users can directly communicate with their physicians and other family members.
