An application to inform, motivate and empower individuals on their journey to better health for Biovotion
Assisting people to live a healthy lifestyle is something we value. We believe that data, when collected reliably and understood intuitively, can play a significant role in helping us understand our health choices. In our collaboration with Biovotion, we combined their technical expertise with our creativity to launch Augment, a mobile application that helps people make sense of their physical activity and aims to guide them to better health.
Intuitive and actionable medical data
Augment helps people understand and act upon their medical data. Collected by Everion, a wearable device capable of measuring a wide range of health parameters, Augment provides a high-level overview of a user’s health status and presents personalized objectives in the form of daily goals.
Insights across dimensions and time scales
To generate sustainable outcomes for better personal health, we visualize a user’s movement, exercise, relaxation and sleep on different time scales: daily, weekly, and monthly. These three views foster an understanding of a user’s current health status as well as the long term impact of habits and behaviours.
Designed to reach goals
Knowing which activity to invest your time and effort is key to achieving your objectives and potential. We designed a simple representation of a user’s daily activity agenda. Intuitive and immediate, the design blossoms throughout the day providing goals and recommendations that are unique to each user’s personal needs.

Visualization in motion
The design of the Augment application interface encourages the user to stay active and dynamic throughout the day. The fluid page transitions with subtle interactions mirror this goal by exciting the user with an energetic look and feel.

Density without complexity
To promote positive behaviours, the Augment application enables users to identify and map decisions, as well as actions that are contributing to their health. This requires the study of many parameters in parallel. The timeline design allows detailed analysis without cognitive overload by combining all relevant information into one compact visualization.
Deep dive into data
The application measures data on four physical activities which contribute to the user’s overall health indicator. We designed dedicated views for each of these activities, allowing the user to drill-down into the data of each of these individually. The different views enable a self-directed analysis of statistical information and progression over time in addition to offering guided insights calculated by artificial intelligence.
Easy to scan, ready to explore
Measuring a wide range of parameters, the Augment application includes a comprehensive vital signs view, that provides the user with accurate insights. Each vital sign is represented as a card composed of real-time measurements, customizable time-series, and helpful statistics. By switching between the «live» and «24h» view, the focus shifts from a summary overview to a detailed, exploratory visualization.
Our design was eventually implemented by a third-party software engineering partner. To simplify the handover of the design specification and to ensure the quality of the implementation, we established a comprehensive design system. The system consists of a library of modular interface and visualization components as well as clear guidelines for interaction and behavior patterns. Catalog, our own tool for creating living style guides, gives the Augment design system a home.
