Personal Modules for Wellness

Together with some of my coworkers, I've been working on a wearable technology project via Artefact. The project is focused on the topic of healthcare and takes an integrated approach to the design that combines technology garments, industrial design and software.

The modwells system is a platform that delivers a consumer-focused healthcare experience integrated into your daily life. It improves your physical and emotional health, and enhances your quality of life. The system respects the unique health and wellbeing needs of each user and accommodates those needs through a customizable solution that blurs the line between traditional medical products and consumer products.

The system consists of:
Mods: a collection of input and output sensors that collect and assess health data, provide basic feedback and alerts.
Trestle: A trestle that presents data and interaction and recharges the mods wirelessly.
App: enables users to work with their personal health data, manage goals, share experiences with friends and connect with healthcare professionals
