Access all areas – How participatory design and assistive technology shape a more inclusive society. The 5th annual build.well.being is a free of charge networking event for doers in Digital Healthcare. Health professionals meet developers, applied science interweaves with innovative ideas from students, companies get together with startups and experts.

A short afternoon starts with a call to action for truly inclusive design and accessibility for all and continues with insights in developing eye-tracking sensors for fighting myopia with school children. Students will showcase innovative ideas ranging from visual onboarding for radiotherapy to voice-assisted listening exercises for cochlea-implanted children and motivational apps for playing outside. In an inspiring chat the experts will finally discuss the premises and promises of digital health, wellbeing and care. The program includes (read more):

  • Keynote – Accessibility and Assistive Technology – Where participatory design for a more inclusive society starts – Klaus Miesenberger (AT)
  • Taking Eye-Tracking to the Real World What we learned from developing integrated eye-tracking and sensor technology to follow the visual habits of children at school – Vanessa Leung (AT/CH)
  • 5Times5 Pitches by master students from Digital Healthcare
  • Inspiring Chat by Digital Makers Hub The experts talk on the premises and promises of digital health, care and wellbeing Petra Plunger (AT), Klaus Miesenberger (AT), Vanessa Leung (AT/CH), Mariella Seel (AT).

Portrait Klaus Miesenberger13:00 – 13:25 Keynote – Accessibility and Assistive Technology – Where Participatory Design for a More Inclusive Society Starts
Klaus Miesenberger (AT),  head of the Institute Integriert Studieren at Johannes Kepler University Linz, long-years scientific editor of the International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs (ICCHP), executive board member KI-I (Kompetenznetzwerk IKT zur Förderung der Inklusion, www.ki-i.at), past-president of the Association for the Advancement of Assisitve Technology in Europe (AAATE, www.aaate.net) and found of the society “bookAccess” (www.bookaccess.at).

The number of digital gadgets, apps, devices that promise assistance and aid is enormous. With this also the amount of data is exploding and leave a trail of questions concering accessibility and usability. This talk will search for the starting point in mastering the digital transformation for inclusion and participation. Since many years Klaus Miesenberger does research in Computer Science, Human-computer Interaction and Software Engineering related to Assistive Technologies, Accessibility and Inclusion of People with Disabilities and the aging population. He is in charge of services for students with disabilities at JKU what provides a very practical and user centered research environment.

13:25 – 13:40 Taking Eye-Tracking to the Real World – What We learned from Developing integrated Eye-Tracking and Sensor Technology to follow the Visual Habits of Children at School
Vanessa Leung (AT/CH), Center for Digital Health and Social Innovation, St. Pölten UAS, Novartis Research Foundation grant winner
Mobile eye-tracking technology has rapidly matured in recent years and stands ready to enter our daily lives. What are the potentials and challenges of “smart glasses” in the context of digital health and wellbeing? We will share some of the lessons learnt from our experience of tracking children through their school day, as we searched for insights into the global rise in myopia (nearsightedness).

13:40 – 14:05 5times5 – Master Digital Healthcare Students Pitches (5×5 min, see Showreel)

  • BreathX – visual and auditive instructions for radiotherapy
    Susi Mustermann, Max Hofer
    + Team: NN1, NN2,NN3
    In Austria one in eight women is affected by mamma-carcinoma (Gnant et al., 2018). In 2017 about 5.417 new cases of mamma-carcinoma were reported (Statistik Austria, 2020). The therapy of mamma-carcinoma depends on the individual case but overall, most patients undergo a radiotherapy (Gnant et al., 2018). Nowadays left sided mamma- carcinomas are treated with the deep inspiration breath hold technique (DIBH) at the radiotherapy (Corradini, 2017).   This technique is used to minimalize the doses for the organs at risk. The challenge is to create a system which gives helpful feedback to the person undergoing radiological treatment, in order to streamline the information exchange between radiographer and patient.
  • Coch-LEA – A Listening Exercise Adventure to increase Motivation and Success of the Therapy
    Susi Mustermann, Max Hofer
    + Team: NN1, NN2,NN3
    Among other methods for treating hearing loss, a cochlea implant is used to transform the sound waves into direct electrical stimulation. Since the stimulation does not sound like “normal” acoustic sound, this different way of hearing must be practiced. A successful rehabilitation of the auditory functions requires dedicated practice. However, there is little or no training material, especially in the pediatric field. Another problem is the lack of trainings with German or even Austrian vocabulary as a well as the motivation of the patients.  Studies emphasize that additional modern auditory training like apps may increase therapy adherence.Therefore the vision of this project is to combine the smart assistant Amazon Alexa with a robot ball called Sphero bolt to create an innovative and interactive auditory training for children with cochlea implants. CochLEA – A listening exercise adventure to increase motivation and success of the therapy.
  • FreeReha – Knee Exercises for a Save and Sustainable Back to Sport
    Susi Mustermann, Max Hofer
    + Team: NN1, NN2,NN3
    Knee injuries are common and particularly seen in contact and impact sports. Unfortunately, many of the athletes experience a second knee injury or do not reach their preinjury performance level. The literature review showed that evidence-based rehabilitation programs as well as knee injury prevention programs exist. However, the adherence to the program is a crucial aspect that could determine the success or failure of rehabilitation. FreeReha should support athletes after a knee injury to pursue their rehabilitation in the late stage by providing an interactive setting. The aim is to reduce the re-injury rate and help them find a safe way back to sport.
  • Hospital Check-in – The Digital Patient Onboarding
    Susi Mustermann, Max Hofer
    + Team: NN1, NN2,NN3
    The project Hospital Check-in addresses digital patient onboarding, which aims to simplify the admission management of patients to a healthcare facility. Patients can check in online from home and receive information about their treatment and the clinic before their stay, aiming for an ideal preparation. This includes a digital document management, an appointment schedule, checklists and preparation videos. Not only patients will benefit from this, but administrative admission staff will also be relieved. Our aim is that the project is going to be realized in cooperation with a healthcare facility. This will allow a practice-oriented solution to be developed. The product will be adapted to the needs and existing conditions of the cooperation partner.
  • Parktiv – The Family Gaming App for Playing in the Park
    Susi Mustermann, Max Hofer
    + Team: NN1, NN2,NN3
    Due to the limited possibilities of physical activities in cities, it is essential to create new approaches to increase children’s and their family members activity levels – and that’s why we are creating Parktiv. Exergames can have a positive impact on outdoor play and increase the number of outdoor activities in children and elderly. When developing interfaces, attention must be paid to the different needs of children and elder users. An exergame in a park, could be a creative and problem-solving opportunity to improve well-being of children and elderly, especially in combination with challenging and interesting equipment. The goal is to create an intergenerational application, in which family members of different ages perform playful exercises together – was confirmed. This game will be carried out mainly in parks of urban areas, where families often live-in limited housing conditions. Developing a low-threshold tool for the target-groups is one of the focuses of this project.
