Best intentions: health monitoring technology and children. In Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in Computing System
CHI '12: Proceedings of the SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems
In this paper we describe findings from two studies aimed at understanding how health monitoring technology affects the parent-child relationship, examining emotional response and barriers to using this type of technology. We present suggestions for the design of health monitoring technology intended to enhance self-care in children without creating parent-child conflict. Our recommendations integrate the study findings, developmental stage specific concerns, and prior HCI research aimed at children's health.
