The first application will soon be available for download. I am trying to
think of a suitable name for it. Initially it will be named BodyPointer

This first release of
BodyPointer will be the baseline version for all carers/nurses or
interested parties to test and understand the functionality. This version
may not be suitable for actual real life use. This version contains six
screens; the main screen and five example types of user screens. NOTE:
I admit the User Interface (UI) is
aesthetically basic and requires redesign. I am seeking ideas and
suggestions from medical and care practitioners as to the design, colour,
language and layouts that would work for them.
Ongoing infromation and FAQ's can be found on page
Coming soon, will
be a few video clips, demonstrating the use of BodyPointer.
Subsequent versions will be the result of feedback and a continual
improvement process. A final version of BodyPointer will only have two
screens; a User Screen and an Administration/Configuration screen.
I would sincerely appreciate feedback on the use of the prototype, so that
we can improve its design, use and acceptability. Please send me an email to
Any Uniiversity who
can improve the application design and use, may do so and I will assign
intellectual property approval to them for no cost. All that I ask, is that
in their application documentation, that it contain the reference "Dedicated
to Mary Kathleen Klein"
Kathy was my spouse who I lost to
Motor Neurone Disease (MND) aka Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and the
reason that this application exist.
