Hey team! This is CC from DFA National. The UC leads asked National to give feedback to yall's Process Packs before final presentation. Let me know if you want any clarification of my feedback or have any questions. Great work so far!

*Like*
- Like how yall listed your insights from Caroline’s interview. Keep these close as these will answer the “why this direction” question yall may face and keep things in perspective as you all continue with the project!
- Like how your HCWs connected directly to the insights.
- Yall mapped out stakeholders for potential users. Great start to figure out who to test your solution with.
- Like how yall researched related products and what’s currently out there.
- Simple color scheme.
- Overall, great job with the research part!

*Wish*
- Wish yall conducted quick user tests on the concept of VIBES. You don’t have to wait till full working-prototype to test the concept. Get a belt, maybe a phone to vibrate (or something that could be quickly prototyped to vibrate) then make the user put the belt on and run a testing session. You will be surprised to find how much you need to make or take out from your concept.
- Wish yall got to interview more than one person with Friedrich’s Ataxia!
- Wish yall included your team members!

*Confused*
- I felt like some slides had too much and some too little. For example, “Interview Sights” slide had a lot of text and lowered my excitement (same with “Research: Related Products”). “Mockups” and “Prototypes” had pictures which got me excited but didn’t have much information which made me confused. Seems like you all actually made prototypes? I couldn’t tell :(
- In general, I’d really think about what you want the audience to know and how you want the audience to take in that information. You already have great information on the slides. Think of how to communicate as succinctly as possible. I generally go for 1 theme/type of info on 1 slide. Since this your final deliverable that wraps up your project, think of how whoever in the network/in the future would see your work!

*Question*
- Think of a situation where a user is out of balance but are having a hard time getting back into balance. Would VIBES keep vibrating till the person got to a correct balance? Although the vibrations address the balance, how positive is that feedback? Does the results of your concept actually fulfill your goals as a team? Something yall would only figure out after user testing :)

Stakeholders
Organizations interested in this product
Caroline slide
More information on haptic feedback studies
Point out aspects of each existing design
Point out “x” on mock up
Liked we moved away from an article of clothing
The sticky bras would wear out over time
Figure out a way to change out “sticky bra”
Correspond with battery life
Figure out a way to remove vibrator in sticky bra when cleaning it

We're ecstatic that Caroline said she loves our idea! All the feedback we got from our peers has showed us where we need to go next and what we need to research. We plan on looking into which technologies we would need to employ for our sensors/vibrators. We also plan on speaking with professionals and utilizing resources at UC to get opinions on our idea. Once acquiring more information, we plan on making a more developed prototype. We will probably look into making two different prototypes that address different areas of comfort - one with adhesives and one that is incorporated in clothing.

Highs:
Angie - English sucks
Carrie - this meeting :') - went on a date last night (got mac n cheese burger) holla
Julian - Doing well on assignments
Alyssa - Writing list of Bigs for APX
Zak - Looking forward to reading days

Lows:

Julian - All nighter last night (ew) working for past 30 something house (help)
Alyssa - too much as well, professor assigned 10 models and 10 drawings yesterday for tomorrow (vom)
Zak - Past two days - pressed for time

We love the idea about a playground. We also like the fact that we're narrowing our focus. We want to make sure our focus fits well with Caroline. We're nervous because we're not actually constantly communicating with her. We plan on reaching out to her and conducting another interview and maybe exercising with her. :D

Might start meetings off with cute/funny/thought-provoking video :D

Reforming Steps
make…
❖ Design Goals
❖ “How Can We” Statements
➢ how can you solve the issue at hand/accomplish desired goal
❖ measures of success
➢ may change throughout
■ being a number would be good but not necessary-number may be more narrow
somehow this lead to “ideate”

Michelle was here for the first part of the meeting and reviewed the content we went over on Sunday
She explained HCW’s, Loft, Measures of Success
Once Michelle left, we discussed our HCW’s and design goals that we already came up with
Came up with Measures of Success
Discussed possible design solutions to look for
Reviewed interview
We're confident in what we're discussing, however we feel that our measures of success are very broad, but like we learned, they will constantly change until an actual prototype is produced
