Akendi at 'life changing UX' event 2015, Cambridge, UK

14 May 2015 / Akendi's Leo Poll will discuss how Experience Mapping can add a patient centric perspective to clinical pathways Clinical pathways are designed to improve clinical outcomes by defining the individual steps of care delivered by different clinicians and organisations. However, they are designed from a treatment point of view and not from the one and only constant factor; the patient.This presentation will address how a UX technique called experience mapping can visualise the patient's perspective on care as a first step to designing a better overall experience.".

CMTS UX

20 March 2014 / Invent less, Discover more! Leo Poll presented at the 'Do Patients Really Matter?' - Joint User Experience & Wireless Healthcare SIG event. about the need to move beyond identifying just the 'what' and ask 'why?' before thinking in solutions. Only then can solutions be developed that are appropriate, effective and first and foremost make you wonder 'why didn't anyone think of this before?". Surprisingly many of these kinds of solutions are actually quite low tech as was demonstrated during the short pitch. Read more about this here

AR

21 February 2013 / Augmented Reality? Akendi's Daniel Iaboni will give a talk on Augmented Reality for the uxWaterloo group. The last few years have seen augmented reality finally breaking into the mainstream. Designers have an exciting opportunity to create augmented reality interfaces. To do so, they need to consider not only the context of use, but also the environment in which the information is presented. Daniel Iaboni is dedicated to creating and improving designs to provide an exceptional interaction among users, their environment and their tools. To do so, he draws upon extensive knowledge from the fields of engineering, computer science, psychology and anthropology. In this session he’ll walk us through important concepts in designing for augmented reality, including input and display technologies, current interaction techniques, and approaches to prototyping.
