Abstract:Despite the significant progress in the design of mobile health (m-health) applications, few of them target low-literacy users. This is a matter of concern because for example 31.1% of Rural India population and 15% of Urban India population are functionally illiterate. Low literacy users put special requirements on the user interface(UI) of m-health applications. User interfaces that do not meet the needs of this group of users form an unacceptable barrier to finding and using the connection with the health caregivers. To empower low-literacy people to fully profit from the health system and enjoy good-quality life, we studied how to design a mobile application for low-literacy people, especially in the UI design. In this thesis project, we collaborated with Roche Diabetes Care GmbH to design an m-health application (Tapir) for low-literacy type 2 diabetics, primary focusing on India.
