A knee monitoring device and the preferences of patients living with osteoarthritis: a qualitative study.

Papi E, Belsi A, McGregor AH - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Derived data should be available to patients and clinicians.Furthermore, wearable technologies should be developed to operate in two modes: for exercise guidance and assessment only, and for unobtrusive everyday monitoring.The information obtained from this study should guide the design of new technologies and support their use in clinical practice.

BMJOPEN2015007980F1: Patients’ views on practical issues.

Mentions: The focus groups revealed recurrent concepts as expressed in the participants’ views. The findings suggested five overarching themes patients associated with wearable technology, which are linked and intertwined: practical issues, utility/functionality, patient–doctor communication, social impact and empowerment. Given the aim of this paper, which looks into design requirements for our wearable system, only the first two themes will be discussed in detail. Practical issues and utility/functionality, along with their associated concepts, are presented in figures 1 and 2.
