As part of my Bachelor's degree at the NUS School of Computing, I did an Honours Year Project (also known as Final Year Project or FYP) titled “Instructional Design and User Testing of Move Correctly”.
My project was done with the startup Move Correctly, in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The objective of the year long project was to improve their Kinect based automated posture and mobility assessment system of the same name, Move Correctly (MC), an automated posture and mobility assessment system using the Kinect.
The medical nature of MC required user to complete the assessment with a high level of accuracy and precision. However, all user personas were similar in their unfamiliarity with the Kinect or gesture based interaction. I approached this by first identifying existing problems via controlled experiments and statistical analysis, then implementing and validating my changes via iterative user testing. I also devised a simple swiping algorithm suitable for complete beginners. Finally, I carried out an evaluation of the overall results and made recommendations for the system.
Below is a summary slide of my project, as well as a demonstration video of my final product. If you would like to take a look at my report or find out more about what I did, drop me an email and I'd be happy to answer your questions (:
