Abstract:This thesis describes the design and development of an augmentative and alternative communication software system for use by disabled patients in intensive care units. For this challenge we adopt the principles of agile software development methodology. We repeatedly analyze the requirements from patients, medical specialists, nurses, physiotherapists and family by testing intermediate working versions of our software. For each development cycle the design challenges and evolution of earlier design are discussed. We continuously evaluate the development process and conclude that most of the agile principles effectively contribute towards solving the design problem. The final product is positively received by all stakeholders.
