Aura Personal Health Tracking

Industrial Design Studies

Aura is a Light and HR tracker for an elderly or dependent user, which analyses light exposure in real-time. By providing this data to a healthcare professional such as the user's GP, Aura tracking can enable them to tailor changes to the light exposure in the user's environment and routine to adjust the Chronotype to resolve sleep disorders. The design process involved UX research through stakeholder engagement and story-boarding, resulting in concept ideation and developing electronic equipment and programming sensors.
