Improvements of a First Aid Application Based on a Usability Study

  • This paper consists of the observation of existing first aid applications for smartphones and comparing them to a first aid application developed by the University of Koblenz called "Defi Now!". The main focus lies on examining "Defi Now!" in respect to its usability based on the dialogue principles referring to the seven software ergonomic principles due to the ISO 9241-110 standard. These are known as suitability for learning, controllability, error tolerance, self-descriptiveness, conformity with user expectations, suitability for the task, and suitability for individualization. Therefore a usability study was conducted with 74 participants. A questionnaire was developed, which was to be filled out by the test participants anonymously. The test results were used for an optimization of the app referring its' usability.
