Health Technology User Experience Survey
This research project is being undertaken as part of the QUT Design Lab’s research Design for Health and Wellbeing. The aim is to find out how devices that help people to track information about their health (e.g. Fitbits) support those people to make decisions that improve their health.

You are invited to participate in this research project because you are an adult sports enthusiast or athlete, have previously used a health app or health tech device (e.g. Fitibit), and have an interest in tracking personal health data to make decisions so that you can perform better at your sports. In this research we aim to learn about your perception of personal or wearable technologies that monitor your body status, and your opinion about the usefulness of wearable devices for sports, your motivations and trust about the use devices for self-monitoring your health.

Definition: Health technology products for personal use are advanced sensors that are intended for a person to continually wear on their body during daily activities (for example, during work, exercise, or sleep). Some of these products are known as wearable technologies. These health tech products can be as simple as a pedometer (for counting how many steps you walked) to more complex devices with many sensors that are used, for example, to track your fitness, what your activities are and how you are doing them, or your mood or physical state. They can come in many forms, such as bands worn around the wrist (like a smart-watch), ankle, head, or chest; in the form of clothing with sensors inside of them (shirts, vests, socks, hats, etc.); as smart glasses; or as bandage-like devices that are fixed directly to your skin.

Scenario: For your sports practice, your coach or trainer has asked you to wear a smart watch on your wrist. This device contains sensors that can collect information about your heart and breathing in order to understand your physical condition. The devices also contain movement sensors that are used to identify your movement patterns and activity type. Lastly, the devices also contain a global positioning system and a radio frequency system to track your location and your nearness to other people or objects.
