Abstract
There is a need for high quality evaluation instruments when testing new mobile

devices and services. The aim of this study was to describe the development of the

MobiHealth Usability Evaluation Questionnaire. It was developed in a step-wise

consensus process with close interaction between researchers, technology

developers and end-users. The questionnaire ten dimensions: functionality, user

considerations. These dimensions are defined and their usage as parameters in an

evaluation instrument is discussed. The conclusion is that the MobiHealth Evaluation

Questionnaire can be used as a basis for method development when evaluating

mobile care and rehabilitative devices, but it should be tested for reliability before

actual use. (Less)
