Abstract

This paper presents the research, the preliminary design stages and an early evaluation of a digital wearable product for monitoring and managing the effects of a chronic disease called Raynaud’s phenomenon (RP). The proposed wearable prototype aims at supporting sufferers in their everyday life for managing and preventing RP. The product is composed of three main parts, a physical product of a smart ring, the digital infrastructure of the physical computing subsystem (hardware and software) and an accompanying mobile application.
