LAB 3A WRITE-UP
Graph of the Average Heart Rate
Graph of the Average Temperature
For both the heart rate and the temperature, we used the T-Test since there were only two groups (the Gold standard and spree).
-Heart Rate=0.71 -Temperature=1.67
When observing the results of the Spree in comparison to the Gold standard regarding measurements on heartbeats per minute the group found that the Spree was surprisingly accurate, within approximately three or four beats. The Spree would be able to give an indication of how the workout was affecting the subject based on heartbeat and would be an adequate substitute for monitoring heartbeats instead of having something strapped to ones finger throughout a workout.
The design flaws of headband that were noted were the look of the band, the marks left on the subjects head after use, the band itself was uncomfortable and tight, sweat accumulated under the band, there was difficulty syncing up the headband with android phones, the headband and phone would disconnect if there was too much distance in between them, and the only way the Spree was able to give body temperature was on a color scale labeled: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. Aesthetically the Spree Band should have been sleeker and less noticeable, throughout that experiment several people questioned the subject on what the device was and what its purpose was.

Target Population and Need
The target population for SafetyCANE is for elderly individuals and their loved ones who wish to assure stability and safety of their loved ones by using a cane that monitors stability. The cane would be very mobile and specifically targets the possibility that a fall could occur and a potentially bad situation of not being able to get up after hurting themselves. The need of the SafetyCANE stems from the huge amount of elderly individuals who accidentally fall, consequently harm themselves during the fall, and are unable to stand back up to receive medical attention.
