A Household Robot to improve self-management behaviours in people with heart failure

As part of an NHMRC-funded IDEAS grant, we have a PhD opportunity to help design, develop and evaluate a Temi 3 household mobile robot for home monitoring to support self-management for people living with heart failure.

Project supervisor(s)

Professor Ralph Maddison

The Temi 3 household robot will enable individualised monitoring of symptoms, and adherence to medications and healthy lifestyle behaviours. Key behaviour change techniques, gamification, and tailored information will be integrated into the Temi 3 household robot to maximise effectives, and facilitate empowerment, uptake and engagement, leading to improved self-management and health outcomes.

We are seeking a PhD candidate interested in working on Temi 3 household robot for home monitoring, which can include:

  • Understanding optimal intervention features for a Temi 3 household robot for home monitoring;
  • How to engage people to use a Temi 3 household robot for supporting self-management; and

Applicants must hold an undergraduate degree with first class Honours degree or equivalent Master’s degree with a substantial research component in a relevant field including health sciences, psychology, information technology and software engineers. Please refer to the entry pathways to higher degrees by research for further information.
