Abstract [en]

We have developed a new version of a pervasivesystem for monitoring and recording subjective painexperiences. The most important service the system offers to itsusers is real-time delivery of reported pain values from patientsto nurses. Pain experiences are expressed on a six-value scalefrom "no pain" to "worst possible pain". The system was testedin four sessions with 23 test users from Finland and Sweden. Themain goal of this study was to evaluate user experience of thepatient application and the sounds we designed for the userinterface. We tested four sound options; spoken, synthetic,xylophone and mute. The material was collected through groupdiscussions and questionnaires. Familiarity, the extent to whicha sound can be identified, and the quality and the pleasantnessof the sound were found to have an effect on forming a positiveexperience. Sounds describing pain levels have to be convincing.The context of use has to be taken into account as a primarydesign driver in a sound design process.
