Abstract:The aim of this study is to design a user based graphical interface for mobile devices, regarding gait analysis in dogs based on sensor fusion. A literature review was conducted, and more background research was done. Then, a first prototype was made, and an iterative design process started. Dog owners, veterinarians, orthopaedic specialists, gait researchers and a graphical designer were interviewed and asked to test the prototype, and afterwards the research team evaluated the feedback from the testers. This is implemented in the prototype and in the next iteration evaluated again. Also, an ethical reflection has been conducted. Due to the unique needs of the target groups, there was chosen to create both an expert, including veterinarians, specialists and researchers and a non-expert interface. Interviews and user tests resulted in a list of functional and non-functional requirements. Most importantly when designing the application are the following requirements: the instructions for the data collection must clear and the output of the analysis must be easy to interpret. Besides, a colour-blind friendly palette was chosen to include as many users as possible. Functionalities that need to be considered are a communication channel, a pre-visit questionnaire, and a diary. The full prototype can be accessed via:
