People with a history of head and neck cancer were interviewed so that we could understand what had helped them complete therapy at home in the past. Then, we asked them what design concepts they would like to see in the Mobili-T® app. The information gained from this study was used to create a simple, yet appealing, Mobili-T® app interface for our patients.
