Abstract

A medical intervention will be designed as an out-of-the-way device that will benefit people who struggle with social anxiety problems, and possibly people with other psychological disorders. Surveys have been distributed out to the public that asks for people's age, if they have a psychological disorder/social anxiety, their gender, what they do to discard their symptoms, and what contraptions they prefer for a fidget device. I deciphered the information to create designs that I will produce and test. After 3 prototypes are created, one of each each design, 14 people a week will test the intervention. These tests will be followed by surveys that will ask for feedback from the device, what could be changed, what they liked, which device they liked more, gender, age, if they have a psychological disorder/social anxiety and additional feedback. The surveys will be collected on Fridays and interpreted on the following Sunday so modifications can be made to the device's design. During the upcoming week, the new devices will be tested and the surveying process will repeat. After a month of surveying, the final product will be modified and it will be ready to be presented.

Surveys have been distributed out to the public that asks for people's age, if they have a psychological disorder/social anxiety, their gender, what they do to discard their symptoms, and what contraptions they prefer for a fidget device. I deciphered the information to create designs that I will produce and test. After 3 prototypes are created, one of each each design, 14 people a week will test the intervention.
