Abstract

The purpose of this paper is illustrate why and how a mobile-phone based application was proposed to explore how women react and their acceptance toward well-being management after interacting with the application. It was organized by considering the Female-focused Design Strategy (FDS) and designed to have three features: a description of health topics, a self-help diagnosis through step-by-step questions and quizzes about health topics to test general health knowledge. The paper reports the qualitative user feedback and discusses the recommendations and trends for future design and implementation for women's health.
