Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test Phase

The goal of this phase was to iterate the prototype further and get feedback from the customer and parents of the NICU. We plan on conducting the majority of the system level tests during this phase. Also, we will be working with the NICU to leave the garment prototype over the weekend so multiple parents can try on the garment and breast pump with the garment on and provide feedback on the comfort and usability of the garment over a longer period of time than previously.

NICU Feedback: Usability

On Friday, 3/29/2019, we will be working with the NICU to get feedback from parents on the comfort and usability of the garment. Over the weekend, our customer will work with parents and healthcare providers and facilitate the use of our garment with a weighted baby model. We are also asking that mothers breast pump with the garment on and provide feedback on their experience with that.
