Health informatics is a rapidly growing area of technology. The aim of this project was to create a functional prototype that captured and processed sensing and processing usage data of sensory physical artefacts using available and custom physical computing solutions. A literature review is carried out reviewing relevant topics to health informatics and physical computing. The definition of requirements and development process carried out to meet those requirements is instructed by knowledge attained from the literature review. The result is a functional prototype system that meets the functional requirements. The system was developed to detect the usage data of a sensory apron and a method of deliberate user input achieved. The user is able to identify themselves to the system in a passive way with the use of NFC technology. Following the philosophy of the non-functional requirements future development considerations are offered to move on form a prototype stage.
