Product UI UX Design consulting for a
IoT App for Female Health
I worked with a healthcare company that was developing an IoT app for female health. The app would allow users to track various health metrics, including heart rate and ECG data, and receive personalized insights and recommendations based on their data.
The company identified a need for a more comprehensive health tracking solution for women, particularly in the area of heart health. They wanted to create a tool that would allow women to easily monitor their heart health and detect any potential issues early on.
To understand the problem and its context, I conducted user interviews with women who had a history of heart issues or were interested in monitoring their heart health. I also analyzed existing research on women's heart health and reviewed similar apps on the market.

However, she struggles with finding reliable sources of information about heart health, which is a pain point for her.
Persona 2: Sarah
Sarah is a 65-year-old retired woman who has a high school diploma. She is widowed and her goal is to manage her heart health and maintain her independence. However, she faces difficulty in using technology and understanding medical terms, which is a pain point for her.

To address the problem, I worked with the development team to create wireframes and prototypes of the app. We focused on creating a simple, intuitive interface that would allow users to easily track their heart health metrics and receive personalized insights and recommendations.
We tested our designs with users, gathering feedback and making iterative changes based on their input. We also incorporated feedback from healthcare professionals to ensure that the app was providing accurate and helpful information.
The final version of the app received positive feedback from users and stakeholders. User testing showed that the app was easy to use and understand, and that it provided valuable information about heart health.
We also saw an increase in user engagement with the app, as users were more likely to track their heart health regularly and take action based on the app's recommendations.
