A Multi-disciplinary Approach in the Development of a Stroke Rehabilitation Tool
This work describes a method used in the development of a stroke rehabilitation tool. The method was based on three key elements. The first key element was iterations between the use of broad groups with different professionals/stakeholders and small hands-on working groups with users from the same profession. The second key element was movement between understanding differences between different organizations and professionals and understanding of specific needs within the different organizations. The final key element was including implementation aspects from the very start of the work.
