    Feasibility and Acceptability of Smart Augmented Reality Assisting Patients with Medication Pillbox Self-Management2019In: Studies in Health Technology and Informatics, ISSN 0926-9630, E-ISSN 1879-8365, p. 521-525Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Complex prescribed medicine regimens require extensive self-management. Handling multiple pills can be confusing; using a pillbox organiser is a common strategy. A smart Medication Coach Intelligent Agent (MCIA) can support patients in handling medicine. The aim of this research was to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of the MCIA. A prototype was tested with 15 participants, age 17-76, filled a pillbox according to prescription assisted by the MCIA implemented in a Microsoft HoloLens. A quantitative method using questionnaires was applied. Results showed that using the MCIA implemented in an AR-headset, to assist people with prescribed polypharmacy regimen in filling a pillbox, was feasible and acceptable. There was a difference related to age regarding people's willingness to use an AR-headset for medication self-management. People older than 65 felt less comfortable using the technology and were also more hesitant to use the technology than those under 65.

    Older adults co-creating meaningful individualized social activities online for healthy ageing2018In: Building continents of knowledge in oceans of data: The future of co-created eHealth / [ed] Adrien Ugon, Daniel Karlsson, Gunnar O. Klein, Anne Moen, IOS Press, 2018, Vol. 247, p. 775-779Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social isolation and loneliness among older people is a growing problem with negative effects on physical and mental health. In co-creation with older adults individualized social activities were designed where older adults through computer mediated communication were able to participate in social activities without leaving their homes. Four types of activities were designed; outdoor activity, music event, visiting a friend and leisure activity. A participatory action research design was applied, where end users together with scientists from two research fields developed, tested and evaluated online participation in the activities. Usability and safety of the systems were major concerns among older adults. The evaluation pointed out that level of simplicity, usability and audio-video quality determined the level of satisfaction with the human interaction during the activity, thereby affecting the meaningfulness of the activity. The research presented in this paper constitutes the first step in a long-term research process aiming at developing a digital coaching system that gives older adults personalized support for increasing participation in meaningful social activities.

    Microsoft Hololens: A mHealth Solution for Medication Adherence2019In: Artificial Intelligence in Health: First International Workshop, AIH 2018, Stockholm, Sweden, 13-14 July, 2018, Revised Selected Papers / [ed] Koch F. et al., Springer, 2019, p. 99-115Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to introduce a smart mHealth application based on the augmented reality (AR)-paradigm that can support patients with common problems, related to management of their medication. This smart mHealth application is designed and implemented as a medication coach intelligent agent, called Medication Coach Intelligent Agent (MCIA). The MCIA has to manage different types of information such as the medication plan (medication regime) of the patients, medication restrictions, as well as the patient’s preferences and sensor input data from an AR-headset. Considering all this information, the MCIA leads with holistic decisions in order to offer personalized and unobtrusive interventions, in an autonomous way, to the patients. From a long-term perspective, the MCIA should also evaluate its performance over time and adapt in order to improve its interventions with the patients. To show the feasibility of our approach, a proof-of-concept prototype was implemented and evaluated. In this proof-of-concept prototype, the MCIA has been embodied as a smart augmented reality (AR)-mHealth application in the settings of a Microsoft HoloLens. The results show a high potential for using the MCIA in real settings.
