Abstract

Wearability, or the relationship between a worn technology and the ability or desire of the user to wear it, is a key element in the successful design of wearable technologies. Wearability addresses the physical, cognitive, and emotional state of the user, and the impact of the wearable technology on the user's homeostasis in each area. This tutorial will provide the participant with an overview of the pertinent variables and design considerations for the design of truly wearable technologies. We will address factors related to anatomy, ergonomics, cognitive science, psychology, sociology, textile science, interface design, and apparel design.
