HIA (Health Inspection Assistant) / Sphygmomanometer

HIA (Health Inspection Assistant)
HIA (Health Inspection Assistant)



HIA aims to help its users develop good health check-up habits by creating a brand-new sphygmomanometer user experience. Our study found that most users don’t have regular medical check-ups habits and periodic data is needed to facilitate diagnosis. However, traditional alarm setups are not popular and put pressure on the users. The cameras in HIA detect and identify users nearby and perform micro interactions, attracting users when it is time to measure their blood pressure. With the smartphone app, users can view or share their data with friends or hospitals.

Very innovative - obviously much easier and quicker to get results, user-friendly and extremely useful, nice, friendly design that covers a lot of functions, high elaboration
We’d like to thank Dr. Tung for advising and beta testers’ participation, which helped to make this project more complete. We're looking forward to seeing this design make its way into the real world, improving our everyday lives.
