    Abstract

    This final year project was part of a larger research project aimed at producing software that can be used by a professional therapist in order to aid the recovery for a traumatised patient. The overall research project aims to use dynamic functionality to represent the relations the patient has been through. The idea of this final year project is to make the objects (balls) move in patterns that mimic and represent real actions that occurred in the incident, which would be useful to the larger project, and potentially beneficial to therapist and patient. This final year project used methodologies and theories to produce an interface that allows the user to perform certain tasks to meet set requirements. The project started by exploring shape dynamics in the original system and thereby identify what functionality needs to be included into the artefact to reach the desired outcome. A series of prototypes were made as a result of this analysis and adapted though the course of the project. Between each prototype, the artefact progressed through a succession of product life cycles of analysis, design, implementation and then evaluation. During this process, the project was sent to the client with a series of probing questions and ideas of improvement. This allowed the prototype to evolve to the final product.
