Version 0.2 of scanband increases the size of the measuring window to 5 mm and adds a colored warning strip to allow for quick diagnosis of dangerously diminished mid-upper arm circumference. The barcode gradient in this might be inverted (snafu) and the strip still needs a numerical readout. Also, a window system that folds over the strip, rather than relying on cut slits, would be easier to fit on patients.
ScanBand v0.2Thursday night marked the first presentation of my thesis work to outside critics. It went well, despite a snafu with the barcode scanner that prevented the ScanBand from displaying its results on screen. As a non-digital user scenario, though, it was fine.
Here's the breakdown of my presentation. I've also attached the PDF of the show and a PDF of the version 0.2 ScanBand prototype, which is made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License 3.0
