Abstract [en]

During the past years, gaming and sports in HCI have experienced an increase in design that rely on movement-based interactions. Nonetheless, some of these designs constrain the users and disregard the richness of the social and physical context around them. When designing (took away something here) an activity, we believe that a good previous understanding of it can help designers to create richer and less limiting interventions. On our study, we turn to Pilates in order to study (took away something here) the elements involved in the accomplishment of a working, co-located, social and instructed physical activity, as well as which are their roles and their characteristics. In order to do so, we record a Pilates' class and gather information on the perceptions of the instructor and the practitioners, through questionnaires. An analysis of the video, inspired by the Grounded Theory methodology and Sequential analysis; and also an analysis of the questionnaires, through a simplified version of Content analysis, reveal which (took away something here) elements are involved in such an activity (instructor, practitioners and artifacts ) and the interaction that exists among them, as well as which are their roles (what do these elements perform) and the characteristics of those roles (in which way they are performed). Here we illustrate the different results with examples from the data and, in basis to this data, we review some relevant findings and provide some inspirations for future design interventions.

Abstract [sv]

Under de senaste åren har vi kunnat se en ökning av HCI design inom området interaktiva spel och sport som förlitar sig på rörelsebaserad interaktion. Denna designstruktur kan i vissa fall påverka användarna negativt genom att avgränsa dem från den sociala och fysiska omgivningen runt omkring dem. Vi tror att när man skapar en ny design, är det viktigt att ha en god förståelse av aktiviteten för att minska sådana begränsningarna. I denna studie, har vi valt att titta närmare på träningsformen Pilates för att studera de element som är involverade i en lyckad, social och välinstruerad fysisk aktivitet där alla deltagarna är på plats samtidigt. Här observerar vi till exempel vilka roller samt karakteristiska drag dessa element har. Detta gör vi genom att samla information från en inspelad Pilates lektion, samt undersöker instruktörens och utövarnas uppfattning genom en enkät. Genom en analys av videon, inspirerad av grounded theory metodik och sekventiell analys; samt en analys av enkäten genom en förenklad version av innehållsanalys, har vi kunnat se vilka element som är involverade i en sådan aktivitet (instruktör, utövare och andra artefakter) samt de interaktioner som existerar mellan dem. Utöver detta har vi också fastställt vilka rollerna för dessa element är (vad utövar dessa element) samt de karakteristiska dragen av dessa roller (på vilka sätt de utövas). Utgående från dessa resultat presenteras implikationer för design som undviker onödiga begränsningar för användarna.
