Abstract
Wearable self-monitoring technologies can help users learn more about themselves. By enabling people to track their habits and visualising them, wearables can support selfawareness and self-care. For example, wearables can help shift workers dealing with unorthodox sleep schedules of shift work through tools that monitor their body and habits. However, current wearable technologies do not fit well in healthcare scenarios where workers engage in specific antiseptic practices. In this paper we present the process of designing the Smart Badge, a wearable for monitoring physical activity, sleep, and light exposure of hospital workers.
