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.
The 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. 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. I visited biochemical laboratories 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 statement has been shaped towards "enhancing diagnosing project by collecting a sample, producing instant feedback to save time, money and energy for both patients". Within this deep health tracker, users can directly communicate with their physicians and other family members.
Blink is based on before and after comparisons and time-based tests that can be easily analyzed by visual data.
