Abstract:The purpose of this research was to find user requirements for a device that supports care takers in directing their attention to mentally challenged clients when arousal is increasing. In the current situation care takers not always notice when the arousal of clients is increasing. Two steps in the design cycle were made to discover, analyze, specify and validate user requirements. In the first study, a user study was conducted with six participants. Several methods were used to construct a list of requirements, which was translated into an interface design. In the second study eight participants tested the interface design on feasibility of user tasks and user satisfaction. The results showed that the design cycle wherein the user was involved, led to an interface design that was easy and clear to use.
