Step 1. Prepare the Selection Matrix

Concept Screening and Selection

Broken up if you are interested in only looking at one of the matrices

Concept Screening - Structure

Concept Screening - Interaction

Concept Screening - Games

Step 2. Rate the Concepts

Steps 1-3:

Concept Selection - Structure

Concept Selection - Interaction

Concept Selection - Game

Step 3. Rank the Concepts

What sort of information will she be able to get from it?

What sort of feedback will the patient get from it?

IDEA 1

Image:Capacitance Button tower.bmp

Pros
Tactile Feedback
Low pressure
Measurements
multiple buttons so
known technology
Cons
y dimension dependent on how many sensors we have
no third dimension
Risks
What is the limit of the number of buttons

game?

IDEA 2

Image:IR tower.bmp

Pros
won't knock over
3D feedback
cons
no tacticle feedback
no physical goal
risks
unaware of the technology
IDEA 3(won't be proposing this idea to her it's just back up)

Image:slide tower.bmp

Pros
can add incremental change(distance)
Cons
Will not be as portable
bulky
Risks
Rank importance
objective physical measurement
physical object to touch
how accurate - no physical measurement needed
Portability
tracking small incremental change

Step 4. Combine and Improve the Concepts

Customer Visit 26Oct09

Step 5. Select One or More Concepts

Based on customer visits there is an interest for both physical touching of the post(capacitance buttons) and the ability to track progress and distance in space from the target(infrared sensors). Based on this moving forward we will explore further the option of using both concepts in one design.

Step 6. Reflect on the Results and the Process
