UX/ UI Designer
This proposed application will help Crohn’s and Colitis patients to manage their disease properly and make daily life convenient. They can document and track the activity of their disease, bowel movement, and even lifestyle activity so that their attending physician can check their patients’ status. Furthermore, they can easily reach out to experts with the same disease and the app offers nearby restrooms as well.
Aims and Goal
People with inflammatory bowel disease(IBD) suffer a variety of symptoms, so this app can navigate their
individual circumstances(physically, mentally) depending on their specific symptom profiles without any costs.
Prople who have Crohn's and UC
I performed market research before I start app designing to see the opportunity in the real world.
I found there are some different types of applications that help people to take care of their bowel disease, but they are usually hard to use since they have too many functions in one app.
After market research, I did user interview and made persona base on user interview.
What I found during the research was that he needs something that help him to find public restroom during he's outside because he never knows when he wants to go to restoom. Also, he wants to track his symptom using application everyday.
After that, I decide to set my final solution which are tracking symptom, and finding public restrooms.
Based on market and user research, I illustrate user story.
1. Tracking System
2. Finding Restroom System
I designed a style guide to make my app more consistent and clean.
I designed low-fi prototype to see overall user flow.
Based on low-fi prototype, I put more details and more functions after user testing.
Feature 1. Self-Tracking
Users can document and track their bowel activity, movement, and even life style.
Feature 2. Public Restroom Map
Whenever they want to go to restroom, users can easily find nearby public restroom using app.
Feature 3. Ask Expert
Users can ask expert anytime and also they can see others questions and replies as well.
By doing this project, I learned how to understand users and finding solution better. It was first time to work on project something related to health and it was quite interesting and learned a lot. I asked my persona to test this prototype and he liked a lot and hope he can use in his real life.
Overall I satisfied my project result and hope I can develop this someday.
