Abstract

Even though Overactive Bladder is a treatable condition (75% of cases can be cured or ameliorated), it remains mostly undertreated due to embarrassment, lack of knowledge or misperceptions. In this paper, we investigate what are the key features of a mobile phone application that could help people with Overactive Bladder symptoms adhere to a self-managed rehabilitation program. We also investigate what methods are appropriate to use with end users with an embarrassing condition. Our results show that it is important to include all stakeholders (health professionals and end users) in the iterative design process as contradictions were found between and within the stakeholders.
