Heuristic evaluation is a tool of usability engineering. It provides a determination of design error and possible issues with product use. This project applies the elements of Heuristic evaluation to a home kit carefully curated to older Parkinson’s patients with limited knowledge of technology. The home kit is carefully assembled to provide an easy method of monitoring the progression of Parkinson’s Disease, the goal of the kit is to collect data on the patient's ability to get up from a chair and walk 10 ft.
