What challenges or opportunities are you trying to address within the problem? (200 characters or less)

People who have bone issue have low mobility and going to hospital is a huge burden to them. So why not develop an app where you can book medical service anytime anywhere.

It is a mobile app where you can book health check service for people who have bone issue and the service will be on-the-spot so patient do not need bother going to hospital.

If you were to become a Top Idea, would you want to actively participate in piloting your idea?

What is your legal / organizational structure?

More Details: How to get human-centered with your application. Every product idea is founded on a hypothesis: an educated guess about how successful the product will be. We simply can’t know how things will actually work out. There is no data about the future. But there are ways we can test the hypothesis. We do this by uncovering and examining assumptions we are making about who will want and use the product – as well as how they will learn about it, what they will pay for it, and more. This Office Hour is designed to help you uncover and test your assumptions and thus strengthen your proposal.

Hi Wang!
Your idea is quite fascinating and I think it is useful to keep the elderly's health on track. But I still some questions about your idea.
1. How can old people use mobile phone to book service? I am afraid the majority of them can't.
2. What is the health checks about? Who are doing these? Can old people accept that?
3. How can they know the result of the health check?
Look forward to your reply.
Thank you
Roger

Hi Roger
Thanks for sharing your opinion. Here are my anwsers.
1. The app is for their children to use, not the elderly.
2.The health checks are about normal medical checks and also specialized bone check. And these are done by professional doctors.
3. The results will directly send to your mobile app to help you keep track of the elderly's health.
