Abstract:Literature studies will be done to explore product experience. This analysis comprises the role of product experience in design, the eliciting model of emotions in a product-consumer relationship, and how designers can use this knowledge to influence perceived experience through the appearance of a product. Simultaneously, the appearance of existing medical products will be analysed and the outcome of this analysis will be applied to a case study (chosen medical product: sleep apnea device). Three visualizations of potential sleep apnea devices will be generated for different applications: a) home, b) travel and c) hospital. By means of a test consisting of a pre- and post-test, conclusions for a guideline can be drawn.This guideline can provide designers with a direction on how to design medical products for the three previously mentioned environments (home, travel, and hospital). Three visualizations of sleep apnea devices are made based on this guideline. Conclusions The findings of this assignment can provide designers of medical products with an insight into product experience, the role of emotions in design, and a better understanding on how to influence visual product experience through different design elements of medical products.
