Design Principles

Now with our users in mind we came up with our design principles to guide us through our ideation phase.

Ease of use

  • Data presented is clear and easy to understand

Motivate

  • Empower users to proactive with results bases on their participation

Medical Expertise

  • Build confidence that the app is secure and reliable

Ideation

Countless ideation session were held in order to decide which functions to incorporate and how we wanted the app to not only look, but feel.
