User testing: wearable health device for older people

Doctor teaches older female patient to use health monitoring device

The client brief

Our client wanted to gain insights from healthcare practitioners (HCPs) and older consumers about a new wearable device for vital sign measurements which is non-invasive and intended for home use. We were asked to recruit respondents in New York City for face-to-face sessions to introduce people to the device and conduct usability testing.

Research methodology

These are the methodologies FieldworkHub used during this research process to help our client achieve their desired results.

FieldworkHub delivers

Consumer respondents needed to be 50 years or older, fluent English speakers and completely unfamiliar with the device they were about to test. FieldworkHub successfully recruited a mix of gender, ethnicity, ages, income levels and education levels. Despite the length of the sessions (2.5 hours for the consumers and 4.5 hours for the HCPs, consisting of training, then a rest period, followed by a final testing session), we successfully completed 36 interviews, exceeding the client’s initial target of 34 completes.

FieldworkHub's advice for successfully recruiting high-quality research participants

FieldworkHub has been a great research partner to me and my team. Caroline and Cornelius were incredibly proactive, helping us anticipate any issues that might come up and plan for how to handle them. Even though it did turn out to be a challenging project, things went smoothly because we were one step ahead. The team went above and beyond to help ensure our goals were met.
