Towards Guidelines for the Design of Patient Feedback in Stroke Rehabilitation Technology

Lilha Willems, Daniel Tetteroo, Panos Markopoulos

Abstract

Feedback is known to play a key role for the effective rehabilitation of patients after stroke. Although general guidelines exist for UI design for people with physical and cognitive disabilities, and feedback systems have been evaluated with non-disabled persons, little is known about how best to design feedback for interactive technologies supporting rehabilitation after stroke. This paper describes the iterative design process of a feedback module for TagTrainer, a tangible interactive tabletop technology supporting armhand training. Based on the evaluation of this technology with seven stroke patients, we propose five guidelines for the design of patient feedback for stroke rehabilitation technology.
