Abstract

As an alternative to the technical industrial mindset, User-Centered Design has proven to be an effective tool to realize products and services for the Healthcare sector. In this scenario, this project aims to develop an innovative wearable gait rehabilitation solution obtained by integrating the Smart Glasses Vuzix Blade into the smartphone-based CuPiD-system. The specific aims of the testing phase described in this paper were to observe how submitted visual, auditory, and vibratory cues influence the user’s gait; and which were the most impacting and efficient typologies of cues. To achieve these results, we analyze the users’ qualitative and quantitative feedback, respectively obtained from an interview and a specific gait analysis protocol.
