Abstract

In the current situation of covid-19 pandemic, the supply and demand relationship of medical resources in various hospitals is unstable. However, people's needs for understanding their health status are increasing. The purpose of this project is to assist telemedicine so that people can check their health at home. So, we proposed a civilian medical furniture solution. In the solution, we took the chair design as an example. First, we found out the user’s needs and pain points via observation and interview. Based on this, we analyzed the characteristics of chair design and developed a prototype using a flexible contact sensor technology. In a follow-up evaluation experiment, we also added the details of the product according to ergonomic design principles of sitting posture. Moreover, after obtaining the heath data of users, we improved the product quality by visualizing the data. Finally, we tested the interactive effects of data visualization and then received positive feedback from users. The results of this project could help the design and development of civilian medical furniture.
