💉András Pollák - Medtech: Design for people with medical conditions
Our company have been aiming to help medical startups in the last few months. We've been involved with smart home solutions for people with dementia, big data startups for cancer patients or people with disabilities, etc. It is a very eye-opening experience to face these challenges and gather some medical knowledge alongside with UX (our partners in that is the Semmelweis Uni, the University Hospital of Stavanger and the Medical Health Walley in Nürnberg). The main talking point would be:
-Design for people with different cognitive, motoric or visual abilities.
-Why and how a UX designer should understand the brain, to design for people with brain damage or brain related diseases (such as Alzheimer, dementia, etc...)
-Why should EVERY UX designer understand the brain - The user interface is a mirror for our cognitive activities

😎Stefan Chitu - How to prototype for virtual reality
Prototyping for virtual reality is challenging for new comers. You quickly realise that it's daunting to no longer design with two dimensions in mind, to have the power of sound in your hands and to be implicated in selecting the appropriate technology (from Smartphone VR Headset vs PC Headsets to CGI vs 360 videos). Even though you have articles around the web to help you get started, you're still faced with the challenges that there's no low fidelity prototyping tool available currently on the market.
Let's talk about what we @Qualitance learned from building our own prototyping tool to using it to build immersive experiences while working on virtual reality projects for Fortune 100 companies.

🕵️‍♀️Lotte Boersma & 🕵️‍♂️Wouter van der Velde - Triangulated UX Insights
Lotte and Wouter, working for Noldus, will share how to use multimodal data in different visualizations. We did a study together with the Tech3Lab, in which multimodal data is used in UX testing, using an emotional circumplex, a journey map and a heat map. Using these vizualizations of triangulated UX insights allows us to analyze what the users'pain points are and then take a deep dive in what happens with the user's attention and emotions during that specific moment.
