Abstract:The University of Twente competes in the SensUs challenge and this year the student team TwentUs’22 is representing them. The subject of SensUs 2022 is Sepsis, a disease that is deadly. This year’s student team is putting their efforts into detecting the concentration of the bio-marker Interleukin 6 in blood plasma through the use of micro ring resonators. The assignment of this thesis is to design and realize a conceptual end-user interface for a potential commercial product that is based on this measurement technique. This thesis plays a significant role in exploring the target group of the product, as well as creating the potential commercial product itself. The end-user interface is designed using the iterative design method. First the requirements for both the product and the interface are determined using personas and scenarios. Once a specification is made on what the interface should be, a prototype is made. This prototype is iterated upon by having intermittent evaluation sessions with both experts and representatives of the target group. In the end, the result of this thesis is discussed in the context of the future applications of the potential product and what changes it will bring to society.
