In Madrid, Spain, the UPM team prepared and run the Spanish pilot of MED Food TTHubs during the last days of the year 2022! With the execution of this experiment, a feasibility study of the Consumer app is being carried out involving 22 participants of legal age with different diet conditions who come from the network of LifeSpace, the UPM Living Lab.
LifeSpace is more than a lab, it is an ecosystem that combines knowledge, actors and technologies for the creation and development of innovative solutions aimed at promoting improved health and social welfare services. The simulation of a supermarket scenario has been created in LifeSpace premises, to bring the study participants as close to a real-life environment as possible and to make the results produced as accurate as possible.
Information on usability and technology acceptance has been collected with these standardised tools: the System Usability Scale (SUS) and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). In addition, socio-demographic data has been collected to contextualise the study and some open questions that will provide valuable qualitative data for further analysis. We are now working on analysing the collected data, and the results will be presented in the coming weeks.
