Butterworth Product Development Competition

Overview

In April of 2019, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine hosted their annual Beall Student Design and Butterworth Product Development Competitions. Teams of students had to present an original idea or current design problem, designing a prototype for their product. These teams were given until June 2019 for development, when they would present to a panel of judges. 

The Idea

My teammate and I decided to develop a wellness application that provides users with the best possible treatment plans for their muscle pains and injuries. Users would be able to select a muscle that hurts (off a diagram of the human body), and the app will then prompt them with questions about their pain and threshold. After this mini survey, the app will provide a list of actions that the user can take, with different stretches and exercises that they can do on their own, or a personalized recovery route (by the app) that tracks exercises, stretches, workouts through recovery, and rest time. 

Below is a video of the UI of the application, showing each of the pages and steps that a user can take when using our app. In addition, there are the official plans to our application, including the Product Specification, Concept Paper, and Final Product pages. 

Results

Although our team did not take home any awards, the judges highly praised our project, and encouraged us to continue working on it for next year's competition.
