erga_25_3.coverA paper involving the E & HF group has been recently published in the journal Ergonomics in Design: The Quarterly of Human Factors Applications, Ranking: 2016 SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) Score: 0.252 | 177/518 in Engineering (miscellaneous) | 25/40 in Human Factors and Ergonomics (Scopus®) | Indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI): a new index in the Web of Science (TM) Core Collection.

This work, which involved researchers from the University of Minho and the Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave, aimed at the development of a minimally invasive device for monitoring children’s body temperature easily and effectively.

The development of the device was divided into two stages: (1) a product specification process, which included detailed analysis of the problem, competitive analysis, and consumer surveys; and (2) development and optimization of the product, which included testing the product prototype with target users.

The paper is available online (restricted access).
